Beyond Wearing Purple - Twitter!
"If we don't change, we don't grow.  If we don't grow, we are not living."
Gail Sheehy
The week winds down, and there are always small inspirations that blow in under the door.
I met a gentleman, not retired, not going 'gently into that good night'....
We had a conversation, stepping into what we knew, sharing bits of each other's worlds......
He had twenty years on me, and I am a smidge above the half century mark.
A managing partner in his firm of 40 years strong, he is engaged daily in the world around him.
A gentleman, son, husband, brother, and grandfather.
He loves his iPad.  Loves his iPhone.  They connect him to those he is close to, the people that really matter.
We talked about adding Twitter to his toolbox.
He lit up in delight.  Seems this could be the ticket to connecting more with his granddaughter.
Our world is traveling fast, time begins to slip.  The search continues for ways to remain relevant and current in our younger generation's life.
Give them distance, but then know you are a peep, a tweet, a chirp away, and always ready to lend an ear, or a helpful hand.
