Aristotle defined ‘memoria’ — what we call memory — as the most necessary part of aging.
James Hillman in The Force of Character And The Lasting Life adds that our memories give us “…long term gain and short term loss…”
I would add that aging and changing is the milieu retiring lions are confronted with in our fast-paced ever-changing world.
The Story Goddess solution is a writing program partly developed on the training / mentoring I received through writers
Jack Remick, Robert J. Ray and Stewart Stern at the University of Washington in Seattle.
A lifetime of storytelling has allowed me to refine writing practice
for retiring leaders by tapping into what I call, A Memory A Day.
The goal, somewhat altruistic, is to address our global hysteria about dementia
with the hope that ‘memoria’ holds our secrets for our satisfying end years.
