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." Del Lowery - Host


538 Focus On Things You Can Control


We can spend a lot of time on things of which we have no control. Our thoughts and sleep can be cut short. It might be best to accept what we must and focus on those things we can control or at least influence. Our life can be better.

537 Reconnecting


There is no friend like an old friend. Someone must have said that. Retirement allows us time to reach back and reconnect. It also allows us time to reach out and make new friends. It may involves a little risk and require a little effort.

536 Exploring


Retiring and exploring go hand in hand. At least they can. Many believe they have to jump on a jet to far distant places to explore. Not so. Many new experiences can be had very close to home for those attuned.

535 What Money Can't Buy


Retirement is about more than money. Choices need to be made concerning money. But there are many decisions that do not concern financial and investment issues. We need to think about these.

534 Advanced Directive


Life ends for all of us. We all want to die without pain if we can. Medical Directives allow our best chance to do that. Our view of death is usually formed via television. It is so very misleading. What to do?

533 Who We Are


We want to know about our parents history. We want to know about our grandparents history. We need to share our stories with younger members of the family. It does them good and it also helps us review our own lives. Now is the time.
