Covid Visits A Therapist

January 19, 2022

What brings you here today? I’m doubting myself. I’m supposed to be a Big Deal Pandemic. I did everything right. I came at a time when people were always travelling all over the planet. I snuck in easily from another country and took everyone by surprise. I kept changing, so everyone kept getting confused. I […]

Life in the Boomer Lane has been in a six-week whirlwind of travel, involving Brussels, Florida, and the homes of various humans who she gave birth to, as well as the humans they, in turn, gave birth to. Loyal Readers should not feel deprived of hearing about LBL’s travel horror anecdotes. LBL has already written […]

Burning the House Down

Life in the Boomer Lane has been around for a long time, so long that she remembers when everyone listened to the same news and either agreed or disagreed. It’s a crazy thought now, the idea of our choices being limited to either agreeing or disagreeing. Now, we are on a different path. It’s like […]

Congress is entirely distracted now, either trying to pass legislation or trying to stop the passage of legislation. Life in the Boomer Lane will not deter them from their respective missions by casting comments in their direction.

I used to lead a workshop to enable women to discover and to declare their visions for their lives. It was created for women over age 50. It’s not easy for anyone, much less for older people and even less for women, to get past the layers we have created to protect us and to […]

A few months before the Age of Covid set in, Life in the Boomer Lane had a client who was holding a big estate sale in order to sell a 50-plus year accumulation of everything in the house. The attic was filled with toys from his childhood, his wife’s childhood and the childhoods of their […]

When the We is More Important Than the Me

A couple years ago, I was at the gate for my flight when I spotted who I believed to be John Lewis, seated at the same gate. I immediately strode over to him, put my hand out and said, “Mr Lewis, it is a true honor to meet you.” The man in question smiled and […]

Why People Don’t Wear Face Masks

July 13, 2020

There has been a lot of confusion around the wearing of face masks. Mostly, this consists of two groups of people. One group is comprised of scientists and medical professionals who say that face masks are the #1 way, along with social distancing, that people can protect themselves from Coronavirus. The other group is comprised […]

To Lubbock With Love

A long time ago, Life in the Boomer Lane participated in a workshop in which people declared their visions for their lives. Huge visions were encouraged. Impossible visions were applauded. As time went on, visions became grander, more expansive. LBL will admit, she was enthralled by these visions. And some of these visions actually manifested. […]

Seeing the World Without It Seeing You

The world is becoming a smaller place on a daily basis. The locations beset by a rotating array of political upheaval are being joined by those who are standing in the direct path of an unruly climate. Places that are safe, clean, and that speak American English are becoming an endangered species. What is one […]
