A Potpourri of Photography, Poetry, and Passion
Join me in Three Rivers, Saugatuck, Hastings, or Holland to hear our story “A Bench, a Tree, and a Flower”
Mother, Jane McKinney, and I are members of the one in six described in the 2020 census. We are over 65. While research shows that regular contact with nature can improve short-term memory loss, reduce inflammation, recharge immune systems, diminish a sense of isolation, and lower the overall risk of early death, for Mother and me, there was more. Nature brought us together on our respective journeys to find inner peace, to live with joy. But gaining access as one ages can be a challenge—for those living independently as well as those who are homebound. Often it boils down to a bench, a tree, and a flower.
Come hear our story this autumn at the Club of Little Gardens in Three Rivers, the Saugatuck Woman’s Club in Saugatuck, and the Thornapple Garden Club in Hastings. Titled “A Bench, a Tree, and a Flower,” the talk is a potpourri of photography, poetry, and passion. Admission is free and the talks are open to the public.
