I AM A SONIC BOOMER, NOT A SENIOR... In this blog, I am writing to and for those who believe that the Boomers will change what the word Senior means. I also believe that Boomers will change what retirement means in our society. The blog is also for those who are interested in what life after retirement may look like for them. In this blog I highlight and write about issues that I believe to be important both for Seniors and working Boomers.

Walking in the Rain
The other day I was walking and I was caught in a rainshower; on the wet coast this is not unusual. What was nice is that as the rain fell, the wind blew and the scent of falling rain, mixed with the fragrance of the flowers and the river made me think how lucky I was to be in this spot at this time. I watched a couple walking towards me, older both in shorts, like me they had not expected the sudden shower. As I watched the man who was wearing what looked like a sweat top, took his sweater off and handed it to his partner, who immediately put in on her head to protect herself from the rain. She was wearing a t shirt and shorts. I am not sure I would have done that as the man was not wearing an undershirt. So now walking toward me was an older man, no shirt and his partner with a shirt over her head. I wonder what the backstory is on this gesture, which I thought was a nice one, but it made me think, would I do the same, so I watched the couple walking in the rain and thought of the song "Singing in the Rain"
