Have you seen the book by Lyndsay Green, "You Could Live a Long Time: Are you Ready?" It talks about similar things. Here is the author's blog and link to book.


What will indifference get me?

another great blog ms. syd. the old half full glass, it's a enigma. i can't be happy all the time anymore then i can be sad. what i can strive for is contentment and all though it's cliche, it's like walking the razors edge but i think it can be cultivated to a art form. i think back to the "cool" old guys i knew from my youth. curmudgeon who would say to hell with this or that with a smile on their face or a laugh. i like douglas' reply (and i like his blog) but now a days i save indifference for my enemy's (of which i don't have many,thank god). syd not only is your blog great it links me into so many other interesting blogs and sites.

@Larry--I haven't seen that book, thanks for the link, it looks right up my alley.

@Douglas--you made me laugh out loud!

@Fred--I like those kind of curmudgeons . . .

Hi, Syd... I enjoyed reading your article in US News and World Report, "Six secrets..." I was especially interested in your point about the importance of a strong social network. Seems to be that a common problem which many face upon retirement is loneliness. Clearly, loneliness can be debilitating emotionally and, if it persists long enough, physically as well.

Have a great Thanksgiving, Bill

I just sent this post to a bunch of my friends as I agree with most of what you’re saying here and the way you’ve presented it is awesome.
