ELDER MUSIC: 1954 Again
Being Good at Being Old (Again)

New York State of Mind

By the time you read this, I'll be in an airplane on my way to New York City where I will be covering Consumer Electronics Week, a digital conference, for the Senior Planet website.

You recall Senior Planet, don't you? I told you about it in January because it is such a bright spot in the dearth of good websites aimed at elders.

The director Barbara Arias invited me, along with two others, to report on the CEWeek conference for Senior Planet – particularly about products and services of interest to elders.

I'll be letting you know on these pages when those stories are published at Senior Planet.

Following the conference, I'm sticking around for a couple of days to soak up my home city and visit with some friends.

Meanwhile, posts here will be short and/or sketchy but there will be something each day so that I can link to the terrific stories at The Elder Storytelling Place. If you're not reading them maybe now is a good time to give it a try. There are a lot of excellent elder writers over there telling a lot of good stories.

I'll be back in full form by – oh, let's give me some times to rest up when I get back - so make it July 1 or 2.

At The Elder Storytelling Place today, Dani Phillips: The Mason jar Fidelity and Trust


Have a great trip, Ronni. The old saying, "You can never go home again," or similar to that - sure you can! And catching up on friends and feeling the vibe there will be your feast and delight.

I look forward to hearing the role and innovations in elder technology. I've noticed an uptick in interest for our age group from tech articles the last six months.

Look forward to your report, but happy for your opportunity to visit "home." Safe travels!

Have safe flights and enjoy!

Bon voyage, Ronni. I know you will be glad to be home again, at least in your home city. And then, I hope, happy to be back at the other home.

Have a very good trip and tell us everything!
God Bless you!
Warm regards

You lucky duck! What an opportunity & a chance for a change of pace. Learn a lot of good things to share with all your many readers & have a ball in the big APPle. I'm curious: how many hats will you be taking.........we'll need some pics, too. Maybe you'll run into Ari & his camera. Fond regards, Dee

Have a safe trip and a wonderful visit. The conference sounds intriguing. I had either forgotten about Senior Planet, or missed it when you wrote about it, but I'll check it out now.

Have fun in the Big Apple, as I know you always do. Better you than me. LOL

Wishing you a safe trip! Sounds sooooo exciting! I just know you will enjoy seeing and visiting with some friends.....catching up on what we have missed with friends can be the best of all! I will look forward to hearing about highlights of your visit there!

Yay! NYC! I bet you are so excited! Have fun.

Chilling with old friends in old haunts. It doesn't get much better. Thrilled for you, dear Ronni!

Ronnie's in NYC and here I am stuck up here in Westchester. But then again, this town ain't big enough for the both of us.

ENJOY and be safe in your travels!

Simply great stuff.

Can't wait to hear all about your trip. Enjoy your favourite city.

Buon viaggio! Have a safe, smooth, WONDERFUL trip "home" (nice that both destinations are "home"). We'll miss you but will enjoy the vicarious thrill of knowing you're in NY again and that we'll get to READ ALL ABOUT IT in July.
