Now That I’m 95…

Now that I’m 95, I’m determined to stay active with my mind. I’d like to do this with my body, but it’s not the same. For someone who has been physically active most of their life, I am having a bit of difficulty with my oxygen. I guess that’s the way it is. We’ll see what we shall see, and it is the way it is.

In the meantime, I will do my best to stay with my creative stuff. I attempt to write every now and then. I should add that it would help if I received some of my reader’s thoughts. It might stimulate what I do write about—or maybe not?

Your thoughts and comments influence me on what usually ends up as a paper posted to the blog. In fact, I will often write in response due to requests I’ve gotten. Try that on my behalf, and I’ll do my best to get them on paper.

As for my being and getting older, I have this to say. As we age, things happen to us that take our choices away. My example is clear. Being short of breath is not a choice but a fact. So I take action in the evenings—with oxygen, I can enjoy a good night’s sleep. As luck would have it, I do well during the day, with no need for assistance.

Lenette is my blessing. She watches over me and makes sure that everything I do is meant to help me get better. It’s what she does, and it’s working. Obviously, she’s my best medicine. Sy
Have a great holiday. Enjoy family and friends. It’s the best medicine.

I am me; who else?—And glad I am that person—Have never wanted else.
Why want to be else?—I am what I am and been—-Enough just being.

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

  1. Here is a question for you. How did you feel or what were your thoughts when the Greyhound bus disgorged a new group of campers at the beginning of summer?

  2. My memory of recent happenings is not working well. I do recall articles that say doing crosswords and the like helps stave off short-term memory loss. Others have responded that activities such as doing crosswords will make one better at doing crosswords. Because I like to read, I have been thinking that reading something difficult would be useful in keeping the old grey matter humming along at a quicker rate. A physicist friend unknowingly tweaked me recently. He hung up when I asked him about quantum computers.
    The Internet and particularly Wikipedia are available. I started with Wiki. That was interesting, but I needed a book. So I checked with the Washoe County Libraries and found “What Is Real?” by Adam Becker. It was published in 2018. Perfect for my needs indeed. It is a fascinating story of quantum physics and why it was not fully understood by 2018 despite physicists such as Albert Einstein and Richard Feynman working in the area of quantum physics.
    This book, as one of the blurbs says, reads like a novel. I finished this book and will perhaps buy a copy to read again.
    One good book does not a memory aid or dementia cure make. Next I will try to learn more about causes of climate change. NASA has lessons on climate change on the Internet.
