• Were Times Ever Really Simpler?

    Sometimes, when I think about my law practice, Lucy from the “Peanuts” cartoon comes to mind. She often sits in the Psychiatry booth with a sign that says, “the Doctor is in”- for a fee of 5 cents. Besides answering questions about the law, I listen at length to very personal and detailed stories about […]

  • BRUCE LEE IS ALIVE AND WELL—JUST OLDER (PART THREE)

    I cannot stress enough how imperative it is to my senior clients to keep moving and continue learning new things. This will keep you feeling younger and keep your mind in tip-top shape. However, sometimes it’s hard to take your own advice. We’ll always get the same reflection back when we look in the mirror, […]

  • BRUCE LEE IS ALIVE AND WELL—JUST OLDER (PART 2)

    When I was growing up, I loved watching tough guys in movies. The western stars whose names may barely be remembered today were my idols. They symbolized resilience, grit, and determination. Most importantly, they all had one thing in common, confidence in themselves. My journey into martial arts training was really a path into some […]

  • BRUCE LEE IS ALIVE AND WELL—JUST OLDER (PART ONE)

    I remember when the great martial artist Bruce Lee died in 1973. I was shocked. As a kid, I watched his movies, heard his interviews, and I even read a book about martial arts and the art he had created. (You might be interested in knowing that Lee also played the Green Hornet on television.) […]

  • To move or not to move…That is the question

    I love the billboards on the side of the highway that read, “Hey! Are you moving? Call us!”, and then the wonderfully warm and fuzzy names that come along with these priceless advertisements: My Sons Movers, My Four Sons and Mom, and a personal favorite, Hunky College Guys Movers.  I don’t need to feel warm […]

  • My Weekly Calendar is Full… I’m seeing Doctors

    I counsel clients all the time about getting old. Try to think about the positives of getting older and the benefits that come along with age. The AARP discounts on catheters and raised toilet seats, discounts when you go to the movies at 9:00 in the morning, and the Piece de Resistance, the Early Bird […]

  • Get Ready to Roomba

    Given that my past blog series has been pretty intense in subject matter, I thought we could try something that is a bit humorous to lighten things up.  So, who wants to Roomba?  I have finally found something that lives up to the hype, stays the course, and yet, doesn’t require constant praise after a […]

  • How Heavy is a Human Heart?

    How heavy is a human heart, you ask?  The answer is that it is so heavy that it’s been weighing me down.  It’s so heavy that I haven’t been able to breathe deeply or move from one room to another.  It’s so heavy that my body trembles when I hear the evening news.  Just last […]

  • When #metoo Meets I’m Sorry

    When it comes to youngsters, we accept apologies for bad behavior.  We’ll forgive them for tipping over a lamp while they’re wrestling.  We talk to them about the bad behavior and use the incident as a life lesson.  How about later on, though?  Do we accept apologies when our spouse does something stupid?  Okay, maybe […]

  • Shake, Rattle, and Roll

    Shake, Rattle, and Roll is the title of the Bill Haley hit from the fifties, but it could be so much more.  It could also be a tactic to fend off an attack or even, to save your life.  Recently, I assisted in teaching a class of twenty-eight women on self-defense.  We taught the women […]
