The American culture
glorifies retirement as a time in life when all your
dreams come true as you while away your days on a white,
sandy beach bathed in sunlight. We’re constantly
bombarded by advertising which perpetuates this idea.
For many folks, this is their goal but for others, work
is what gives their lives meaning. Open Avenues has 10
such individuals over the age of 60. I’m sure, if you
interviewed them, their motivation to continue working
would be as unique as the individuals, themselves. But
the fact remains, when others their age are planning
their escape from work these folks find it a fulfilling
way to spend their days. Hats off to these folks!
