Summer is here, so we anticipate taking walks in the construction zone near the former Harrah’s Ranch. At one time, it was one of the most beautiful estates in Reno. The senior Harrah built a castle as the family residence and raised exotic (Kobi Beef) on his many acres. Today it is all being turned into a vast number of expensive homes which will all be large inside but no more than 6 feet apart! There will be little room for gardens and yards for outdoor living, but the purchase includes membership in the Castle with a gym, indoor pool, dining room, meeting, and card-playing rooms, etc. 

In past papers, I’ve described where and how we live, and I believe our facility was once a part of the ranch. In any case, we have interesting walking sites and many parks close by. Also, as the trees and gardens grow, our walks will be that much more enjoyable. 

Our love for the outdoors has not diminished because we are old. Still, it’s painful to realize that being in the forest, mountains, and even travel is not ours to do anymore. Yet, we try to get the most out of our walks. 

There’s a lesson here, and I am sure it has to do with me telling you to do it all before you can’t. Don’t wait for a time down the road. Travel now. Taste the good wines and foods, visit historical sites, enjoy family and friends, read a good book, and hold important dialogue now. There is no time like the present. As a matter of fact, the present is all there is.

This day is yours now—It will be gone in a flash–Enjoy each moment.

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
