All you need is love


valentine3Valentine’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to communicate our love to those individuals who make our lives special. It can, however, be an isolating time for singles. As someone who was single for ten years before I got married the first time and for seventeen years before marrying the second time, I have some experience in this department. This is just a reminder to remember not only your partner this weekend but all the other people in your life you love. A phone call, a hug, an e-mail, take someone you love for a coffee. The simplest gesture can mean so much. To everyone in my life and to everyone who reads my blog, Happy Valentine’s Day. My life wouldn’t be worthwhile without you.♥valentine1

As an early Baby Boomer, born in 1947, it seems to me that as we approach our retirement years, Boomers have gone from being the energy driving our nation to slowly becoming invisible. We risk losing our identity as society remains stubbornly youth-centric. And the irony is that Gen Xers and Ys are not the majority; we are. BOOMERBROADcast is my platform for being the voice of Baby Boomers, women in particular. We've generated a lot of changes over the decades but there's still a long way to go. After a 40-year career in the corporate world, I've taken up expressing the observations and concerns of our generation. Instead of pounding the pavement in my bellbottoms with a cardboard sign, I'm pounding my laptop (I learned to type on a manual typewriter and old habits die hard). If you have issues or concerns you would like voiced or have comments on what I've voiced, I'd love to hear from you. We started breaking the rules in the sixties and now that we're in our sixties it's no time to become complacent. Hope you'll stay tuned and if you like BOOMERBROADcast, share it with your friends. Let's rock n' roll! If you would like to be notified whenever I publish a new posting, click on the little blue box in the lower right of your screen that says +Follow→ Lynda Davis

  1. love reading your blogs, Lynda. Happy Valentines Day!!


  2. Being a leap year, I decided to give my husband flowers for Valentine’s Day……role reversal. I remember cutting out valentine day cards from a sheet of cutouts and personally signing each card with the person’s name from me…..the classroom then held about 25-30 kids and your fingers would get sore from the scissor cutting. These personally signed cutouts were to be placed in a decorated heart covered mailbox in our classroom. Our school windows had been decorated with red cupids for this occasion. We were all thrilled to get a card from everyone…..especially that special boy in your class. Everyone was to get a card… one was to be left out. I remember the excitement of getting a card and it being signed “love ?” Oh, the mystery of who it came from. It never dawned on me that a matter of deduction would have given me the answer… was just the thrill of the mystery as we left school with a handful of Valentine Day cards from our friends.
