Three summer road trip stories told by 3 generations. Short, entertaining and lots of fun to listen to. I give some background about the storyteller and why these stories are important to them.
The first one is a baby boomer and her mom on a vacation mission to find their heritage. The second story is a guy and some friends swimming through the dangerous grotto on the Bruce Peninsula. And the third story is a 95 year old woman telling about a train ride back in the olden days.
The one thing all us baby boomers have in common is that we are losing more friends and colleagues to heart attack, cancer and alzheimers faster than we can count. How many of your friends and family members died this year? How many of them left an audio legacy for their family and loved ones before they passed? How many of their kids wished they had taken the time to document and record their life stories before their parents and grandparents passed?
Your kids and grandkids aren't going to ask you for it while you’re alive. They are thinking about themselves. But once you’re gone they are going to be thinking about you. And they're going to wish they had spent more time with you and had some quality recordings of you telling them all about the time you smoked pot with the other hippies at Woodstock.

Secret Agent Andy

This story is about a woman who waited, wondered, hoped and prayed that her heavenly, hunky, perfect soul mate would mysteriously apparate into her life, fill her hungry void with excitement, joy and love, then carry her off to an ever-after real life land of bliss – tropical, preferably! But instead, she kept attracting different men wearing the same issues, who left her disappointed and in despair of ever fulfilling her deepest heart-felt desires. 

That woman was me.   The best stories are the ones that come from our deepest pain and take us on a journey through winding paths, treacherous cliffs and deep dark secrets . . . Where they end up is anyone’s guess.

Override Your Fear of Writing

Today’s episode is about overriding your fear of writing so you can have the courage and the authenticity to speak your truth through the stories you tell your grandkids. As baby boomers we want our grandkids to think of us as the cool world changers that we know ourselves to be, but the millennials and GenXers say baby boomers ruined the world for them. They need to know our side of the story.  And they need to hear it in a way that opens their hearts and their minds in order to bridge the generation gap. We can do it.  We’ve gained wisdom and knowledge by meeting life’s challenges. The only thing that appears to be standing in the way is fear. When fear is present, we can achieve nothing. Learn how to override your fear of telling your story.

Living A Life That Matters

How you tell your story DOES make a difference. It makes all the difference in the world. Storytelling is an art.

I Don't Want to Know That

Today’s episode is about having the courage to look at those things in our lives that we don’t want to know about, and why it’s imperative that we get out the microscope and examine them very, very closely.Telling your story is a great way to do the kind of self-inquiry that will give you answers you need to make a difference in the areas of your life that are falling short of your desires.

Purpose, Value & Storytelling

My grandson is growing up in a world where the arts have been removed from schools, handwriting isn’t taught anymore, and cell phones have become part of a child’s anatomy. He has no idea what it was like for me growing up in Motown during an era of racial riots, political assassinations, the British Invasion, Transcendental Meditation, Viet Nam war, Watergate, and Peter Max, whose art clearly expressed the psychedelic craziness of a history wrought with turbulent change. These experiences helped shape who I am today, but my grandson won’t know unless I tell him my stories.

A business from my heart to your heart

We all want our lives to have a purpose. We want to feel valuable, like we matter. And we want to belong by being part of something. Otherwise we feel like butterflies banging up against a glass door. I’ve felt that way more times than I care to acknowledge because 1, 2, or 3 of those qualities were missing from my life.
My kids grew up, moved out and moved on, and as much as I like to deny it, it left a gap in my heart and soul that I had to find a way to fill. My identity was ‘mom’. When that no longer seemed relevant, I was nothing. You’ve probably felt something similar in regards to a job or a relationship. Sure, it leaves us with LOTS of free time to travel, have the bathroom to ourselves, and buy more toys. But when the trip is over and the thrill of the toy wears off, all we have left is ourselves. And sometimes that doesn’t seem enough.
As baby boomers we have lived through massive world changes … probably more than any other generation throughout history. We learned a LOT. We overcame challenges and grew as individuals in so many ways. But what good is it if we can’t share our gifts of wisdom and knowledge with others?

The Madman of Tibet: A Reincarnation Story

Milarepa was born in 1052 in Tibet. His father was a wool trader who had become quite wealthy by the time his son was born. The family lived in a huge mansion and were very generous to their friends, family and the whole community. They were liked and admired by all. Suddenly the father became ill and died, leaving everything to his brother until his son was of legal age and married.  Suddenly it turned into a real-life Cinderella story. But it’s much more than that. Milerapa learned Black Magic from a forest monk, and cast a curse on the people who treated him poorly.

Why Entrepreneurs Don’t Eat BonBons and Other Cool Stories

What is it like to be an independent woman after separation and begin your own business? Do you take life by the reins, spurred on by the mission in your heart and the unshakeable faith that you can and will make a difference in the world? Sometimes everyday life gets in the way of our best intentions and our friends and family judge us harshly because what we do is a total mystery to them.
In this episode I describe a week in the life of a self-made woman entrepreneur, how art plays a part in living our purpose and why art is a highly sought after commodity that people throughout history have risk their lives to steal. A fun and entertaining show for everyone.

Also included are big names in the media who have a daily meditation practice.
