WHAT I WON’T MISS IN SATURDAY’S MAIL

Feb 22nd, 2013 | By | Category: Senior Moments Blog

There are some things I won’t miss in Saturday’s mail. I won’t miss the mail delivery person having to make a stop at my mail box to drop off useless materials that have no redeeming value. I won’t miss the mail having to be delivered by someone who would better have the day off. I won’t miss dismissing the variety of junque that comes on Saturday, urging me to go to the mail box, even when it is a trip of no consequence.

There are more and more things like Saturday’s mail that need evaluating and likely being eliminated from our lives. What’s wrong with our finding ways to head off the flood of materials that we didn’t ask for, don’t need, won’t use, has no value in or for our lives, contributes to many more trees being cut down in our forests?



HOW MANY CAUSES CAN WE SUSTAIN?

Feb 21st, 2013 | By | Category: Senior Moments Blog

How many causes do you suppose seniors can sustain at once? A daily deluge of all sorts of invitations extend a plethora of unwanted, unneeded, unsolicited attempts at getting our attention for one or another effort. Exhausted at the overwhelming numbers of such recruiting devices, I have come to wonder just how many causes we can tolerate.

How many are really worthy of our interest, deserving of our energy, poised to have our commitment? Are they all genuinely dedicated to causes that can and will make a real difference in working at improving the world? How many of them are just rip offs? How many are scams? How many are just another way to drain off our money? How many are nothing more than tricks?
