MentorBoom: Uncommon wisdom for interesting times

MentorBoom: Uncommon wisdom for interesting times.

Welcome to MentorBoom!

MentorBoom is a new venture for me and for those who will be drawn to it.  It is a forum for Boomers to share in and engage with like minded others.  From one another we will gain courage and techniques to deal with the challenges of getting older and finding our place in the new world we are experiencing.  Those of us born between 1946 and 1964 comprise the largest generation the world has seen.  How we move through the coming years will set the bar for those who follow.

I have to be honest and say that I would never have started this blogventure had it not been for my extremely talented and persistent partner, Pamela.  She said she was going to do a blog about food at (www.spoonfeast.com) and that I should think of something I would like to develop as a blog.  What immediately came to mind was a project I’ve worked on for years and about which I have felt stuck.  In part it’s the story of my relationship with a wise old man who served as my mentor for many years.

One thing I found as a result of that relationship is that teaching and learning are never finished as long as we’re alive.  We are all students and teachers as need demands.  You have stuff I can learn from you; I have stuff you can learn from me.  And the wonderful news is: You never know where the next bolt of enlightenment might come from.  As we band together in community, we can help each other move toward our later years in a more thoughtful and aware way.

  1. Robert, I am excited for you. I have recently been thinking that a blog might be a good stimulator for work, as in writing, thinking, and psychic movement. I can see that the interaction would help maintain focus and energy. I have never attempted a blog, but I will follow and from time to time, comment.

    • Another thought I had is that in generations past, men, and not women, have been mentors and received mentoring. The female version has been mothers and grandmothers teaching and helping with child rearing and home making, and of course sharing wisdom. For me, the closest person to a mentor I had was my male therapist, Earl Brown, whom I paid well. I do carry Earl on my shoulder, although I had not seen him for some years before he died. I have had many wise and helpful friends.
