What you need to know before your trail

Len Richman doesn’t intend to grow old gracefully. He’s approaching his 70th year and taking time to look back and consider the paths he’s come along, the route he’s taking and the journey’s highlights.

Shivers and Signposts is the collected diary if you like, of that journey, of that commentary on the attitudes and realisation that age comes to us all and it’s what we do with it that counts.

This then is a journey through life, with the shivers and signposts along the way showing us which way we can go but leaving us up to our own way of experiencing the journey.

Travel Guide

This story is one set in Montreal,  part memoir and part th eauthor’s letter to himself, his younger self as he looks at reflecting on a life lived. Len Richman is a reader who devours books and likes to quote them, these are just some of the signposts which seem to point one way or another as he makes his way along the path of life. The best way forward seems to be a healthy way of looking at life and the part of the journey that starts with retirement. Books, films and the ever changing face of technology seems to guide him as well as as

confuse him but it’s his love of the written word that shines through. This is not a man for whom retirement is  a dirty word! His life journey is one that you can share and put against your own life. What would your shivers and signposts be?
