In her earlier years Barb Warner had pretty good ideas as to what the next chapter in life would be like. There was high school and then college at Michigan State University. She then spent three years in the Peace Corps in Turkey working with a child care program. After returning to the United States she lived three years in San Francisco and spent weekends supporting civil rights initiatives, anti war sentiments and later the woman’s movement. In 1970 she moved to Denver, got married and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. At that time she received a master’s degree in Guidance and Counseling from Antioch University and a certification in Gerontology at the University of Denver. In the several decades that followed she went searching for a profession that would make her heart sing. Although that was only intermittently successful, she enjoyed raising her daughter, learned to love the Rocky Mountains, hiked down the Grand Canyon and enjoyed a couple of awesome European vacations with friends. Now in her seventies, Barb has found her heart singing as she writes her book and blogs and has the opportunity to speak to groups who want to hear how they too can maximize the potential of the second half of life and harvest the wisdom, courage and knowledge that is now theirs
