Seattle Times Column: Old Men

I wish every time I sat down to write was this easy.

I treated myself to a beautiful 12 oz. nonfat mocha, opened my laptop in my favorite cafe, and this story just happened. (January 15 column in The Seattle Times: Uncertain of your next step? Talk to your future self)

I like this story because it shows how easy a useful question can be. A friend, spouse, sibling, parent, or passing skier can ask:

“Best case and with a little luck, you’ll be an old man/woman someday. What does he/she want you to do right now?”
