When you’re traveling you might ask yourself, “How many photos of the Eiffel Tower do I really need? Of Amsterdam canals? Of bakery windows filled with thousand calorie treats?  That’s when it’s time to think about taking a picture of something unusual or at least temporary, which will be gone before the next flood of tourists arrives.

About stillalife

I retired June 30, 2010 after working for 40 years in the field of education and most recently doing school public relations/community outreach in a mid-size urban school district. I wrote for superintendents and school board members. Now I'm writing for me and I hope for you. In this blog, I offer my own views coupled with the latest research on how to preserve our physical and mental health as we age, delve into issues most of us over 50 can relate to like noticing wrinkles and forgetting where we left our keys, discuss the pros and cons of different ways to engage our minds and bodies after we leave the workplace, and throw in an occasional book review, all peppered with a touch of humor, irony, and just plain silliness. Also, I'm on the third draft of my second novel since retirement.
