Stemmed from a comment last week about Taylor Swift, we discuss if there is a stigma around looking up to those younger than us. We also share life dreams we cling to, and our desires (as a public speaker (Rick) and photographer (Julie)) for those we serve when we step away from them. We also discuss ideal internal weather in summer and winter (thermastat wars if you will). Enjoy the banter, ponder with us, and kindly send us some “human fuel” (contact info. below).
