Brilliant – I have managed to complete one of my resolutions for this year in the nick of time! I’ve been wanting to add video to Beyond 60 ever since it was born, but the challenge has been considerable.

To be honest, it took 6 months to purchase a tripod, and another two (and some help) to work out how to open and adjust it. Then it was a plunge into the mysteries of iMovie, and from there YouTube, clicking and cursing my way to getting the darned thing edited and uploaded. Machines and I do not get on…

Not to mention the whole business of recording a video – those moments gazing in horror at my first efforts – do I really look like that? Sound like that?

Seems I do, and as there is never any point in going for perfection, so this rendering will hit the spot just fine.

Welcome to my little video. I hope you’ll enjoy all 1 minute and 5 seconds of it, and if you’re in or near Norwich, you’ll be interested in coming on Reinventing Retirement, which is going to be a whole LOT of fun! If you’re tempted, do book now, as 19 January is not far away…

Reinventing Retirement

Isn’t it time that retirement was reinvented? The very word, ‘retirement’, has such echoes of stepping out of the mainstream of life, into the slippers of decline.

I’ve never wanted to define myself as retired,  and tell people that I’m ‘on open-ended sabbatical’.  Sounds like more fun, eh?

So many people I’ve talked to lately are mulling over their options for life with less work. Stop completely? Carry on part-time? Do something else that looks like work? Or looks nothing like work? Go on a jag of volunteering? Invent a totally new way of being? Bits of all the above?

It’s confusing, interesting, exciting!

The question underlying all that mulling, is this: Who will I become, when I’m no longer Working Me?

This 6-part course sets out to explore that question, and many more.

Starting on Friday 19 January 2018 we’ll meet monthly at the Yoga Tree in Norwich to play with ideas, using all sorts of ways into and around the big questions that come with this new phase of life that is so, so full of potential.

Intrigued? Then please, join us. I’d love to see you there. All details are on the flyer above.
