Death Happens

November 1, 2013

As far as I know there are no more baseball games scheduled for Friday night, November 1, 2013.  I have something that I think you might find very interesting to watch on TV instead. 

There will be a documentary series premiering on Showtime at 9PM ET titled Time of Death It will be a documentary series which will track real people as they come face to face with their own mortality.

Death and Dementia

September 27, 2013

What are you more afraid of ? Dementia or death? 

Honestly, I had never considered answering this question prior to posing this question to you now. 

My mom used to tell me that it must be easy to "lose your mind"  because you don't have any idea that you have lost it!  Nonnie's correct of course, yet those that have the onset of dementia may not feel the same way.

Let's explore the relationship between Death and Dementia.

No Regrets

August 23, 2013

When my mom died, as traumatic an event as it was experiencing her sudden death, I had no regrets. 

I must admit that I feel pretty happy, and fortunate, that I can say that.

Mom and I spoke almost every day, or, at a minimum, at least twice a week.  Sundays was always a good time for us to catch up on each others comings and goings.  We were very connected, except when I was a teenager of course!

Storage Wars

July 19, 2013

Have you asked your parents (or anyone) to keep and store your personal items?

This list might include your furniture, your trophies, your collections of school projects, your personal letters and/or diaries, your yearbooks, and your paperback books and magazine collections.

Don't forget about your photo albums, your scrap books, your halloween costumes and your old bikes, riding toys and camping gear!

Downsizing

July 7, 2013

Why do we spend our lives adding tangible personal property to the already large mountain of "stuff" and complexities in our lives, when ultimately we will reach a tipping point when we end up having to toss, discard, donate and downsize our objects and our lives in the end?

Paper or Cloud?

June 28, 2013

Unless you live under a rock, you most likely have read the front page news about a 29 year old computer technician named Edward Snowden, a whistleblower of epic proportions. 

The hot topic? Cybersecurity, leaks, and intelligence secrets.  People watching people; people getting your data; people listening in on your conversations- whether you like it or not.
