Master Class For Retiring C.E.O.s
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.
Harkening back to the father of Philosophy — Plato himself: necessity is the mother of invention - or so states the flowery interpretation of a Victoria translator.
