Blooming Boomers' Beacon, Issue #012 - Transitions
October 02, 2019

Autumn - a season of transitions

Although fall/autumn officially began in September (on the 23rd to be exact), it didn't feel or look like it - for sure. It felt more like the armpits of summer!

Temperatures still soared for most of us, and leaves kept hanging onto their branches.

However, October generally brings a different experience. This is when transitions actually start happening - hopefully.

Temperatures cool down, especially after the sun sets. Nature displays its brilliance with the fantastic colors of leaves just before they drop - exiting their life supports.

We here at BabyBoomersBloom are making transitions, too. Yippee!!

We're launching a new feature - one we've been talking about and thinking about for years. We're going to the source - YOU!

We're finding out what YOU are doing to enjoy/explore/have a life of gusto!

Inquiring minds want to know....

Check out our first installment of "Meet a Blooming Boomer" here. Then let us know what you think.

And PLEASE give suggestions for who we should feature next!!

PS - Pardon our delay in getting this newsletter out on the first. Transitions are tough sometimes.
