Retirement Talk

WHAT to do with the rest of your life?


Del Lowery "Retirement Talk is an audio podcast (written script a click away) intended to help people who are retired, or considering retirement, to examine their own lives. We will consider an active retirement life in all its facets - not just financial. A retirement life-style that has been considered  carefully is our goal. We want to encourage thought and action."

471 Questions and Answers

There is a big difference in questions. Some are big or important and some are small or relatively insignificant. One thing they have in common: they seem to never end. It would sure be nice if we could satisfy ourselves for once and all. Then we might find some peace.

470 Don't Waffle?


It isn't good to be accused of waffling. We like people who make decisions and stick with them; especially politicians. But should we? What is to be said for changing our mind? Maybe that is a sign we have learned something. We older folks might want to keep that in mind.

469 Whose Problem Is It?


We all have problems. Sometimes we slip into a giant hole by assuming problems that are not really ours. We think we carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. At times we may need to wake up or step aside so we have a chance at enjoying the day.

468 Energy, Personal Energy


We all run out of gas: not with our car but with our own body. We get tired. When we retire and age we sometimes feel like this more often than we use to. Is there a way around this drain of energy? It is something to think about.

467 Poetry Helps


Poetry sometimes cuts right through the chatter. We can learn things from poets. We might want to give poetry and poets a little more time now that we are retired - and have the time.

This podcast first aired in 209. It is one of my favorites.
