"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!
In his book on travelling, the philosopher Alain de Botton references an artist who maintains that anyone can learn to draw in order to record travel impressions. Our Big Sea Change has opened up a whole new world of impressions. Today we took the MouseWolves on a picnic to Lake Conjola. So very, very restful, for all. Soul food.
