Here are some more of the inspirational people whom I've met and interviewed for my TV show, "Alivelihood: New Adventures As We Age."
- Economics professor Mary Stevenson semi-retired from her post of many decades, realizing that she wanted to use her facility for teaching in a completely new way. In her 50s she discovered that she no longer could neglect her body, even though it had always served her well. She started exercising, loved it, and began to take certifications in NIA, Ageless Grace, and Zumba -- methods that she is tailoring for the older population in classes in the Boston area.
- Kathie Malley-Morrison, psychology professor, researched and taught about violence in the home and in communities before turning her astute mind to even larger issues - violence in the world. Her new blog, "Engaging Peace" is an attempt to document all the ways that people world-wide are countering violence by peaceful means.
- Social worker, milliner, and beauty consultant Marilyn Feldman turned her humanitarian spirit to create "days of beauty" for homeless women in shelters all over the Boston area. She and 2 old friends from California founded "Glamour Project" which provides a personalized day of pampering to women who otherwise would not be able to see themselves as beautiful.
