Another Day

Each day brings another challenge or “takeaway.” Like many my age, my hearing and eyesight continually worsen with no chance of ever improving. The overall experience is one of loss, and a sense of depression begins to make itself known.

Giving in has never been my style, so more tests and better glasses are in the immediate future. I am also looking into using dictation with the computer instead of typing. I have always been the “speaker,” so this technology should work fine for me. 

In any case, despair is not a characteristic of mine, even in the worst of times. Fighting for a cause, for what I feel is justified, is who I am and have been my entire life. Nothing is going to change me, including my “aging issues.” The battle is joined, and you will be a witness.

And so it goes until the day comes that I will not be. In any event, I was a pretty good storyteller in my early years. It might be enjoyable for me to go back to more of my old ways. Time will tell, and you will be the best judge.

It is said that the older we get, the more childlike we become.  Early demise avoids this; aging guarantees this. Since I did not choose this long age process, I am going with it, like it or not.

You have my full support to make any comment(s) you wish to make.

Sy Ogulnick received a BA from UCLA, Teacher’s Credential from Los Angeles Board of Education and completed phase I (Master’s portion) in a Doctor of Behavioral Science program at California Coast University. Sy leased and operated a summer day camp in LA. He and his wife then purchased virgin wilderness land in Northern CA, where they built and operated a coed summer camp. They moved to Las Vegas, NV, and purchased, built and operated a community children’s program for families staying in a major resort casino in Las Vegas. They have created programs for children nationwide that employed many people and in the process developed successful training programs for personnel. This led Sy to lecture on how to train staff and the creating of community within the workplace. Sy was then invited to speak at professional conferences on how best to hire and train employees, which led to his becoming a consultant in the art of improving relationships in a work environment and eventually to his epiphany that “Leaders are the primary problem and the answer to the personnel issues that arise in the workplace.” Sy has written numerous papers on the subject of interpersonal relationships, leadership and power. He has lectured throughout the United States, has been interviewed by the media and has appeared on many radio and TV talk shows
