Are you a Boomer or a Senior?

Are you a Boomer or a Senior?

Boomers have always seen themselves as a unique group, we try to defy labels that define us by age or by any other term. The early boomers have reached 70 years and we see the it as the new 50. A friend of mine said that his doctor told him that a...

Robert, I agree that we need to keep busy, and as you suggest, busy in a meaningful way. I am amazed at the amount of things that seniors/boomers are doing to help others, which makes our lives more meaningful. You are spot on with your statement that volunteer means something different than it did a few years back. I also think that many organisations are failing to attract our age group because they don't understand what we want to achieve and that we need flexibility.

Parveen, I was drawn to your two interesting and enlightening comments, by your mention of mature wine. It put in mind of seeing a programme recently where a couple opened an expensive bottle of very old vintage wine, which proved undrinkable. 
Moral we need to remember even mature things have sell by/ best before date. I hope not exceed mine by too much.

...in continuation...

The pupil was stunned...and failed to revive his Guru try as he might. He then looked at the object of his Guru's final line of sight - that very inviting luscious mango. Bzzz...a fly appeared out of nowhere and started feasting on a drop of oozing delectable mango nectar on that fruit. He quickly swatted the fly to death...and in that very instant his Guru came to. The sage explained to his pupil what had transpired after he expired. His soul had entered the body of a recently deceased fly (closest available vehicle) to fulfil his last desire; and his pupil swatting it to death with gusto had redeemed his Soul which returned to its erstwhile vehicle, rousing him up. (This was all a staged incident by the guru to teach his pupil the importance of being focused on one's deity or mantra in the final hours...and as the end was never predictable for the normal human being, he or she should at all times be immersed in thought of God or Compassion or Love or Peace...all channels of good reincarnations if there is still Karma (Cause-Effect paradigm that is projected into many lives) to be experienced.
