It’s All About Aging:What I’ve Learned

There seems to be a big need for a site like It’s All About Aging. Too many people are dealing with issues involving their parents and/or themselves with no single source of information. No way to get your ducks in a row and plan for the future, and so much to plan for.
Five years ago when I was conceptualizing it, and figuring out my exit strategy from my former company, people were tossing crazy sums of money at Internet companies. Since this would be my second “child” getting it funded should be easy (easier?). Right. By the time I was looking for funding, the economy had crashed, and money had dried up.
But this isn’t supposed to be a rant about trying to build a new business in the face of adversity, and how the obstacles just get higher and higher. It’s supposed to be a blog about the amazing people I’ve met in the journey, and the lessons  learned along the way. I’ve made new friends that will be friends for a long time, and I’ve started to learn what makes me happy.
One of the things that makes me happy is food and cooking. For those of you who get the newsletter, you know I’ve been working on a cooking show and related site, the Accidental Locavore. So I’m shifting my focus to developing that along with this and a couple of other related projects. Look for my blogs, recipes and videos on www.accidental-locavore.com. I’ve also been writing a monthly column for my friend’s EcoPlum site.
Thanks for your continued support, and I look forward to filling you in on my cooking adventures.

I’m still going to be a member of the Blogging Boomers Carnival, but under the Accidental Locavore blog. Check out this week’s posts.

  1. I am puzzled that aging blogs and sites so infrequently talk about the transformational possibilities of aging. We give up identity and career and all sorts of family roles, but in this emptying something new shines through. There is an awakening of a new consciousness. Loss and grief are part of this, but they also pave the way for some extraordinary possibilities. But no one seems to talk about aging as a developmental process of new growth, like adolescence. I’d love for us to talk more about how aging feels, what we are learning personally, what the gifts and tasks of a aging are. John Robinson
