"Give and Share Wherever You Are"

Wherever you go,

there you are.

Doesn’t matter,

how near or far,

whether you walk,

or go by car.

Your task in life is to give and share.

That’s what gives you purpose with flair.

Doesn’t matter how near or far,

give and share wherever you are!

A local Washington guy, Blooming Bobville is the practical poet. Bob’s blog http://www.fivestarteacher.com.

SHARING STORIES is a weekly column for and about the 50 plus crowd living in the Puget Sound region. Send your stories and photos to ariele@comcast.net. Tell local or personal stories; discuss concerns around aging and other issues; share solutions, good luck, and reasons to celebrate; poems are fine too. Pieces may be edited or excerpted. We reserve the right to select among pieces. Photos are always a plus and a one-sentence bio is requested (where you live, maybe age or career, retired status, etc.).

SHARING STORIES is featured on www.northwestprimetime.com, the website for Northwest Prime Time, a monthly publication for baby boomers, seniors, retirees, and those contemplating retirement. The newspaper can be found in the greater Seattle area and other Puget Sound locations. For more information, call 206-824-8600 or visit www.northwestprimetime.com. To find other SHARING STORIES articles on this website type "sharing stories" in the search function above.
