Keynote talk on "Being Fully Alive"

In late October, I traveled to Gulf Shores, Alabama, to speak at the 4th Annual Regional Generational Resiliency Conference with a presentation on "The A-E-I-O-U's of Being Fully Alive." Based on the conference theme of "Live Long and Prosper," I talked about the health benefits of being adaptable, energetic, open, involved and unsinkable. Enjoyed a little local cuisine -- and meeting the gator! -- the night before with professionals from University of South Alabama and University of West Florida. Great conference with a lively, engaged audience!
