Amazing Aging With Grace – Part 6: Montessori and Dementia

I’ve had a lifelong love affair with Montessori education.  It began in graduate school.  As I struggled to feel excitement over the fine points of articulation therapy, my roommates – who were both Montessori teachers – came home, exhausted for sure, but elated by their wonderful day at school. Something was wrong  with this  picture. […]

Amazing Aging With Grace – Part 5: Never Too Old For Instagram!

At the invitation of a friend, I recently attended a workshop on using Instagram.  This particular workshop was geared towards artists, but after learning the basics I felt I could successfully apply the same ones to my coaching practice.

I’m one of those weird people who actually like birthdays.  And rather than depend on others to make the day “special”, I take full responsibility for doing so myself.  Some years I go the mani/pedi/massage route; others, I gather friends for dinner; or maybe I simply plan a movie marathon and eat chocolate all day.

Amazing Aging with Grace – Part 1: Meeting Grace

My parents named me Grace – perhaps hoping that somehow I would one day morph into Grace Kelly and marry my Prince Ranier. Over time, Grace gradually became Amazing Grace – perhaps because their best friends referred to their daughter as Magnificent Sarah. It was fine with me. Life was too much fun for me […]
