Gratitude Tour – Part 2

first_imgby, Dr. Bill ThomasTweetShare55ShareEmail55 SharesAlthough I am only 58 years old, I can feel the need to express gratitude growing in myself. The more time we take to appreciate what we have and let others know how important they are to us— the better our lives become.Between ChangingAging Tour performances last year year I launched our first Gratitude Tour. I travelled up the West Coast (San Francisco to Portland) with a small group and every day we stopped at Independent Living communities along the way. Our mission— express gratitude for the elders we met along the way, and the people whose daily work makes the lives of those elders better. This year I decided to try something new. Jude (my better half and the co-founder of the Eden Alternative) and I wanted to hit the road together AND we wanted to make Gratitude, multi-generational. With encouragement from our friends at Holiday Retirement we plotted a trip down the mid-Atlantic coast and we decided to start connecting our friends in higher education (students and faculty) with you, friends in senior living. We challenged ourselves to make eight visits in four days in three states.The result was…. Fantastic.There is a natural if, still embryonic, alignment that should be connecting young and old. We can, and should, be working hard to build that bridge.Some of the highlights for us were; meeting some dynamic new leaders in the field of senior living, hanging out with elders and helping appreciate how important it is to Move, Eat, Sleep and Heal (MESH), listening to cool stories told to us by people of all ages. Addressing a packed house at the University of Richmond and connecting with the leaders who are disrupting aging in Richmond.We loved this tour and I think we will do it again in the fall. If you are interested in connecting higher education with exciting developments in the field of aging and you would like Jude and me to come and see you, send us a note. The road ahead is long and uncertain but we are grateful be sharing it with you.Related PostsTell Me Why…The Second Wind Tour is art, it is non-fiction theater, it is a direct challenge to the limitations imposed by ageist prejudice and it is the beginning of a new way of learning and growing– together.Elders Rock!Our world has been run by mere adults without Elder supervision for too long.Peter Tibbles and the AM in OregonYou probably noticed that I wasn’t here last week – instead, playing host to Peter Tibbles who had arrived all the way from Melbourne with the Assistant Musicologist (AM).
