Monday Morning Coffee

Hello all,

“Park Potomac”

I wanted to give everyone an update for the timetable on the new office. We will officially be open for business October 12th, furniture is being delivered 10/7, Phones and internet installed 10/10 and the copier delivered 10/11. My schedule starting next week will be spending the late mornings (10:30-12:00) in Germantown then heading to the new office for the afternoon. Teri and I will have a lot of work to do to get everything in place so I expect this to be my schedule through the end of October, after that things will return to normal. I would like to ask the Germantown agents to hold off coming to the new office until the week of 10/17, things will be a little crazy at first and we need a couple of days to get our act together. However starting the week of 10/17 I would love to see you all make a trip (individually or a group) to the new office one afternoon, I can give you a tour, lay of the land…  We are very excited about everything and hope you are too.

Enjoy the Coffee,

Monday Morning Coffee


"Learning is the fountain of youth.
No matter how old you are,
You mustn't stop growing."
- Taoist Meditation, Deng Ming-Dao

Don't believe the phrase "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." Creativity isn't only for artists, writers, or musicians. Creativity isn't just what is represented by a canvas or a novel or a song. We can all be creative in our own way, and the most common way that we can all do this is through learning.
As long as we continue to learn and to try new things, we keep our minds fresh and young, and we engage in the act of "creating ourselves" continually. Today's world presents plenty of opportunities for learning, especially about the environment, other cultures, and technology. Technology itself provides ever-easier ways of accessing knowledge through computers and the Internet. And no one is too young or too old to start!
Look around you at the most vital and energetic seniors you know. What do they have in common? A continuing interest in learning and sharing their knowledge and experience with others - so they are engaged constantly in the process. They keep their minds challenged and young, and in so doing, feel younger in body and spirit. They are certainly different than in their youth, but they continue the learning that began there.
Each new phase of our lives brings us new challenges and opportunities for growth. Growing older necessarily means learning new things. We are constantly creating ourselves in this way, and we can adapt ourselves to any situation by that continuing act of creativity that keeps us young
