  3. For many people, retirement means activities like golf and cruises. For others it includes volunteer work and other involvement in the community. In this episode of "Like Wow," John Fisher-Smith gives examples from his own life of active or engaged retirement. For example, he volunteers in a program for teen-age boys and in another for "restorative justice." Politically active, he has a history of involvement in intentional communities.

  4. After starting adulthood as a computer programmer, Bruce Comstock was swept into a life of adventure in the air, first as a pilot of hot air balloons (he won the world championship), and later, at the age of 58, as a paraglider pilot, flying in the U.S. and also abroad. Along the way, he set various records, co-founded a balloon manufacturing company near Ann Arbor, and helped others do such feats as flying around the planet. Here, he talks about the lure of the air, and we see photos of his exploits. He lives now in Ashland and is about to fly balloons again, this time in sight of Mount Shasta.

  5. Women are expected to have children, but many suffer miscarriage, have an abortion, can't get pregnant, wait to adopt, or choose not to have children. Whether or not a woman eventually has children, all these are occasions of missed motherhood. Together, they affect a majority of women, yet our society has no adequate rituals to honor missed motherhood. Women are expected just to "put it behind" them and "get on with life." In her new book, Honoring Missed Motherhood, Kani Comstock tells her own story and the stories of a dozen other women who have experienced missed motherhood and then, with her sister, she creates rituals that can be done by individuals, circles, and community meetings.
