It’s my turn! I joined the Blogging Boomers Carnival a couple of months ago and this is my week to review what our boomers have recently been discussing. I always enjoy reading what’s on their minds, but this week my fellow boomers have outdone themselves with fascinating articles that you’ll definitely want to check out.
For the most intriguing post of the week I nominate John at So Baby Boomer. He asks:”How frequently could we be experiencing the same thoughts as someone to whom we feel closely connected? It probably happens far more often than we’ve ever imagined.” He explores psi, the technical term for psychic abilities, citing compelling evidence for telepathy from the study of identical twins. I have always believed in telepathy and empathic ability, so I read his article with great interest and found it to be intriguing if not astounding!
Ann almost got my vote for the subject I most need to address but don’t want to when she says: “If you’ve spent the weekend stuffing yourself with chocolate eggs, check out Contemporary Retirement to find out why sticking to a sensible eating plan has nothing to do with willpower.” Since her post links to a great article by Oprah’s longtime trainer Bob Greene, who weighs in with what he knows about relapse and how to prevent it, Ann gets my vote for the most encouraging post of the week.
Finally, on a lighter note, the Glam Gals at Fabulous After 40 earn the title of most fun when they ask: “If the streets signs look a little blurry, or the restaurant menu is getting hard to read, it’s likely you’ll soon be needing glasses. What’s a Boomer Gal to when her passion is wearing jewelry? How much bling is too much when you also wear specs?” I might add that throughout my childhood I was forced to wear a pair of glasses much like those depicted on their post. I can laugh now, but in those days it was definitely NOT funny. Fortunately, anyone struggling with the same uncertainty now has help – send the Glam Gals a photo of your look and they will analyze it!
I do hope you will take the time to check out the above articles – I feel certain you’ll consider it time well spent.
