A memoir on
Rekindling Past Learning Experiences to Live Life to the Fullest
Nostalgia, learning experiences, meaningful memories. This book is filled with these from a man who grew up in a strong Irish-Catholic community in the North End of Saint John in the 1950s and 1960s, went on to practise law and then become a law professor and consultant in Toronto. He's a "boomer" who embraced age friendly active community living in a 55+ community in the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA) with a value add of active rv resort living in Florida and Arizona. He's decided to "come home" and as a "Bay of Fundy Boy" is now "living life to the fullest" in the new "boomer" age in historic Saint Andrews by the sea, consistently ranked as one of Canada's top idyllic small towns. But besides dusting these memories off for enjoyment, John G. Kelly has a larger purpose. By cleverly showing how his past experiences and even his F.A.I.L.s (first attempts in learning) have positively impacted his future, he demonstrates how we can all learn from our past and use this knowledge to "live life to the fullest" in age friendly active communities.
Filled with humorous anecdotes, recollections of a bygone era, reflections on community, and a unique outlook on how to get the most from life, Meaningful Memories has something for anyone who likes a good story. For "boomers" looking for a user friendly guide on how to ignite their passion and live life to the fullest in an age friendly active community, you will not be able to put this book down!
