The idea for this poster came to me at 3:00 a.m. yesterday. I finished it this morning. Yes, I am a boomer. More like a boomerang since I am back at the starting line: – )

It’s mind boggling to think about big numbers and that so many of us have officially entered the second half of our lives. I mean really, I can’t even grasp what 76 million boomers look like– that’s probably a good thing. And to think that 3.5 million of those will turn 65 next year . . . and are still going strong, breaking molds, altering horizons. Getting wiser. This is a bulky generation that defines lifestyles and we’re about to define a new one–how to age gracefully with acceptance, appreciation, enthusiasm, personal responsibility and participation. All together it equals wisdom.

Embrace your wisdom.

  1. Thanks for leaving a comment on my Blog, at least someone is listening!
    You are right, I cannot even fathom what it would be like to turn 50 or what you are supposed to be focusing on at that point in your life. Chances are I won’t be focusing on what you are supposed to! My youngest will turn 18 that year so I imagine it will be pretty pivotal, IF I make it, you are right-there is no guarantee.

    Your generation has been in control of everything for so long (due to your mass numbers, adverstising & media gears itself towards the largest markets) I am not sure how things will be without the Boomers. It must be nice to be part of a generation that has really left it’s mark on the world.

    Have a wonderful day.
