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

444 What Are The Symptoms?

Most of the time there is a definite connection between age and retirement. All of the time there is a definite connection between age and health issues. As we get older our bodies change. How carefully do we have to listen?

443 Traveling By Plane


Traveling by plane is not like it use to be. There are so many examples of the changes and only one I can think of that is an improvement. More people can afford to fly. Then there are all the negatives: crowding, cramping, and comfort among them. Now there is the damage to the environment that is being hidden from us all. What next?

442 Kicking Back Without Guilt


Guilt sometimes ruins everything we have ever dreamed. Retirement offers us time to sleep in, take long lunches and long walks. It affords us time to be rather than time to be up and doing. Guilt sometimes makes this rare treat into something bad. It shouldn't.

441 The Joy of Audio


Sound has a particularly magical place in our mind. Those of us raised on radio are perhaps more sensitive to it's mystical powers. Today's Internet offers us a new and expanding format in which to indulge. Retirement offers us the time to close our eyes and expand our mind. What a joy.

440 Meaning in Life


Finding meaning in one's life is not easy. There are many advisors and paths to guide us or misguide us. One thing about it: we can make our own choices if we are strong and persistent in our quest. "He who has eyes let him see". Regardless of who said it I believe it.

439 Work with the Hands
