"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!
My first coastal Magpie. It seemed like an omen after these many long, fraught months. A beach loving, Ti-tree perching Magpie telling me that the Grand Sea Change had finally been achieved and that I had morphed into a coastie.

My Blog Imperative is that the actual Productive Processes and Materials and Tools of a Craft are so utterly fascinating that to Record them and Curate them in my Blogs is actually a Compulsion.
This notion of acquisition of cumulative layers of Process applies to Skills acquired such as piano and flute playing or insightful reading.
I have even considered that Process applied to Observations about Life Viewed from Middle Age rapidly transiting into Old Age applies just as well.
