That was the comment from a young woman sitting near me at a presentation by Sean Crum last night.
Sean Crum is aging gracefully by doing what he loves every day and he recommends that everyone do the same.
As an art historian, his enthusiasm, energy, and passion for art can make anyone eager to learn more. His talent to fully engage an audience makes him a sought-after presenter all around town.
Besides being known as a history buff, Sean is also a reputable painter, printmaker, and musician. He’s a retired school teacher but says that he himself continues to be a forever student, learning something new every day.
Starting at about 29:00 of the video, Sean gives his unique advice for grieving. And I think you’ll agree he’s hit the nail on the head.
Starting at 33:40, please listen to Sean’s straightforward guidance on how to make people truly feel valuable and important – at any age. Warning: you’ll immediately think of a person or two that you will WISH would listen to this!
Sean is extremely talented as an artist. Examples of Sean and his wife Gail’s artwork can be found on their website.
Sean’s interview on Aging Gracefully took place last summer when my website was barely started. Since there are so many new viewers to Aging Gracefully, I wanted everyone to have an opportunity to view it. I’m sure you’ll love this episode!
