"You do have to age, but you don't have to rot." (C.Crowley and H. Lodge)
'The Mad Magpie in the Nest' retired from high school English teaching in 2007.
The 'Nest' is a riot of Baby Boomer lifestyle reflections, and personal experiments documented in order to share ideas for a better old age for us all. The personal is political and trivia is sociologically significant.
Anything is grist for the mill, any morsel of information that can coerced, cajoled or dragged into the nest to squawk or warble or twitter or peck at. Feathers will fly. Songs will be warbled. It's that kind of a lifestyle!
The ocean sounds so wonderfully loud at night. Getting used to a new soundscape is intriguing, novel and a little bit discombobulating all at the same time. Our Great Southern Migration Sea Change is still going full steam ahead, but we will be very glad to find 'normal' again, or at least discover what the new South Coast normal is all about.
