Today’s Silver Generation is expected to have more opportunities to enjoy life and to live longer – to live healthier, better and more productive lives than ever before.  

Research has shown that the information we learn well is used on an ongoing basis.  Information learned well is retained longer because we have an extreme interest in the subject matter or because we need to know it.  What we learn well is processed into the section of our brain that holds long term memory for recall at any time. Besides retaining information, findings also indicate that we have the ability to learn throughout our life time, (which gives us an opportunity to amass a wide breath of knowledge and wisdom).  This means that you are, or have the capability to be, the New 21st Century Renaissance Person.

Merriam-Webster defines “Renaissance man” as a person who has wide interests and is expert in several areas.  During the European Renaissance of the 14th – 17th centuries, the Renaissance person was expected to be well rounded in education and life with an understanding of multiple languages, philosophy, science, literature, art and so on.  Today, with the advent of the Internet, learning is as quick as pinching or tapping a screen and clicking, (“Old School”), your mouse.

Explore your future and explore your past.  (I explored my family’s past, Journey Into a Dark Past, which set me on travels to a foreign land where I gained new insight and perspective about my roots, family members and our history.  My journey enriched my life.) 

Enrich your life.  Embrace your Renaissance-ness – embrace you!
