Baby boomers are figuring out, again, how to cope with change

Linda LeeA big change has occurred in my life. My niece, the Lovely Linda Lee, passed away Feb. 17, 2020. Linda worked as a bank auditor, day trader, and real estate agent. She was really smart and got her master’s degree in economics from the University of Washington.

Her memorial service was held in Bellingham, Washington, a two-and-half-hour drive from my house. I worried about attending with 50 people during a pandemic, but I figured out I could drive up there and back in a day and wear a face mask.

It a wonderful remembrance organized by her sisters Debra and Suzi. The photo of Linda is one I took of her at Debra’s wedding in Italy in 2006.

But now, we need to go on without Linda. It’s a change, a change that I don’t like, but can’t do anything about.

Meanwhile, boomer bloggers are writing about:

  • A look through the book “White Supremacy and Me” to uncover biases.
  • A slow return to a new normal way of life after almost four months of hibernating at home due to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Ways people can help support small business in their neighborhood to help them survive the crisis.
  • How different people approach the changes in their lives and whether if any of us really ever change at all.
  • A warning from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that some hand sanitizers from Mexico are toxic.
  • A dog that “walks” the owner.
