I DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING! The fireworks of life are not always pretty. Some are just loud, stinky, and the smoke lingers. Throughout life, things pop up that change your direction. If you feel like life is pulling you in all directions, and you have no idea where to look or what to focus on, it’s time to start dreaming. The question, “what are your plans?” is usually directed at the graduates or the 20-somethings this time of year, but why don’t we ask ourselves that question throughout our life?

T

he Cliffords like to keep close. So close that when it came time for Laura and Pat’s only son, Sean, to choose a bride, he conveniently selected the beauty three doors down. So close that when an unheard-of property went on the market, just a mile from their original Highland’s homestead — a property consisting of an old plantation-style farmhouse for Sean’s new family with enough vacant land to build his parents a nearby home on — Sean decided to jump on it.

LIFESTYLE ONE PROPERTY, THREE GENERATIONS When Laura and Pat moved into the home where they raised Sean 34 years ago, they never saw themselves moving, but once this opportunity opened up, they began to shift their thinking. “We never thought we’d build a house, and especially not one so late in life a mile away from our old one,” Pat says. But Laura chimes in, across the table from Pat, ping-pong-style, the way that close couples bounce off of each other when telling a shared story, “We loved our old house but it was two-stories that sat up on a giant hill. It was a great idea 30 years ago!” “Yeah,” Pat says, “That hill was horrible. You had to mow the grass sideways or you would flip the mower. The driveway needed four-wheel drive when it iced, and all of the bedrooms were on the second story.” “Too many steps,” Laura says. “So we got the bug to build. There are no empty lots in the city, so this was an opportunity that not many people get,” Pat says as he looks around the modern ranch-style home. The build itself wasn’t an easy one. Plans changed, as they are known to do. The original plan was to divide the property into four lots, sell a few, use one for the parents, and renovate the property’s original farmhouse for Sean and his wife, Genny, and their growing family. However, the farmhouse was out of code and needed too many cost-prohibitive renovations in order to restore it. One of the lots was sold to someone outside the family and later repurchased by Sean and Genny; and Laura and Pat’s lot changed positions from lot three to lot four. HOW’S IT WORKING? Now, over a year later, the close-knit Cliffords can comfortably go about their daily lives from different ends of their shared property. In Pat and Laura’s new home, they have successfully transitioned from stairs and steep-hills, to single-story living. Their flat, irrigated lot is perfect for their aging knees and Pat’s favorite pastime: gardening. Laura installed pulldrawers instead of cabinets in the kitchen and hardwoods throughout the home for ease and accessibility. Not to mention, 10 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Pat, Laura, and grandchildren prepare the firepit that was made from leftover stones from the construction of their new home. The firepit was a welcome retreat for the families during the pandemic.

Genny, their beloved daughter-in-law, is a nurse that lives a stone’s throw away. The couple jokes that they have all the aging-in-place essentials here. Pat’s favorite part of this new multi-generational living arrangement is being able to watch his grandchildren play basketball on their home court from the comfort of his sunroom. Pat made sure to go to all of Sean’s basketball games when he was growing up, and he enjoys being able to have the same experience with his grandchildren. Laura enjoys watching the kids barrel through the shared middle lot as they run over to say hello to their grandparents. “We have always had a close relationship with our son, Sean, and his family. I think that’s what changed most since our move is the spontaneity of the contact we have with Sean, Genny, and our grandchildren. Sean works long hours at the University of Louisville Hospital, but because we are now right next door, he often wanders over for a late evening drink on the back patio, or to talk sports for a few minutes. Even living just a mile apart, this wouldn’t happen. Genny strolls over to talk gardening, or to see what we’re doing, and the grandkids can run over whenever they want to see us. We also love when the kiddos pop up at the front door without warning, sometimes dragging neighborhood friends along with them,” Laura says.


The sunroom overlooks the shared yard and basketball court where the Cliffords can watch their grandchildren play.

During the quarantine, the Cliffords found refuge together, albeit six-feet apart, around a shared firepit between their two houses. While many families were forced to distance themselves from aging parents, the Cliffords kept it safely close. It also helped Genny and Sean to know that their parents could assist with NTI should their children need it (Laura is a retired educator for JCPS). While life hasn’t changed all that much for the close Cliffords since the move that brought them even closer together, Laura and Pat are now secure in knowing that their family (conveniently consisting of two healthcare professionals) is just a yard away. And at any hour of the day, despite the demands of careers, school schedules, or plain-old growing up, they can catch a glimpse of them from the sunroom and know they are still there.

A glimpse of the open floor plan, including the living room, kitchen, and kitchen eating nook, highlighted by the wood burning fireplace. Along with gardening, Pat spends time chopping and splitting wood to fuel the fireplace and the firepit.

LIFESTYLE WHAT I KNOW NOW

By Lucy M. Pritchett | Illustration by Dan Kisner

Steve Wiser on lessons he’s learned and what he wishes we could bring back to Louisville.

S

teve Wiser of Wiser Designs is an architect, historian, and author. He has worked more than 40 years in healthcare facility planning, construction, and design and has written 12 books about the architecture of Louisville. You may have attended one of his entertaining walking tours through Cave Hill Cemetery or a presentation on the historic houses and neighborhoods of the city. He is president of the Louisville Historical League and has worked to preserve much of Louisville’s architectural history. WHAT WAS A TURNING POINT FOR YOU? Getting accepted by the University of Cincinnati. It had a co-op program that enabled me to work for architectural firms while still in school. That way I got experience and made some contacts. I have no family members who were in the architecture profession so I had no connections. WHAT SKILLS DID YOU HAVE THAT GOT YOU INTO THE PROFESSION? At St. X high school the drafting teacher told me I had a talent in that area, and I also had drawing skills. Architecture seemed to rely on both. WHAT IS A LESSON YOU’VE LEARNED? There are going to be roadblocks, but if one thing doesn’t work out just grit your teeth and keep on going. WHAT INSPIRES YOU NOW? On a weekly basis I get an email from someone asking me if I know anything about their house. I do the research which has led to documenting 2500 homes with information about the year they were built, the original owner, the location, and the architect. I share this with The Filson Historical Society, University of Louisville, and the public library because they get a lot of inquiries from people doing research as well. WHAT ABOUT YOUR LIFE AS A WRITER? In 2002, I wrote a guidebook to notable sites in Louisville, and since then I’ve written 12 more books. I have 30 years of research and articles I have written on Louisville architecture. (Books are available at wiserdesigns.com)

12 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

WHAT DOES THE AVERAGE PERSON NOT UNDERSTAND ABOUT ARCHITECTS? They might think architects just draw pretty pictures, but they are actually the conductor of a building project and work with the engineering and construction firms to make sure that all operates smoothly. WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO CHANGE IN LOUISVILLE? It would be nice to have back parts of Broadway. Historic buildings contribute more to the streetscape. Louisville had some spectacular buildings back in the day and some beautiful theaters on 4th Street that are no longer with us.

Creating Beautiful Spaces

W

orking out of her home studio/office located in the sunroom of her Highland’s condo, Lyn Mabry, along with her design team, guides clients through the process of interior design, staging, renovation, move management, and home organization. Originally from Nashville, Lyn says she inherited her design DNA from her mother. Before starting her own company, Living Spaces by Lyn in 2012, she worked in sales and marketing for historic hotels including The Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, The Peabody in Memphis, and The Brown Hotel in Louisville. WHAT GETS YOU OUT OF BED EVERY DAY? I love helping people fix or create something that makes them so happy. I especially like the challenge of helping an older person or couple downsize. They are starting a new chapter in their lives. Tell me which pieces you love, and I’ll make them work in the new space. WHAT WAS A DREAM PROJECT FOR YOU? As co-owner of a state-of-the-art pet boarding facility on 19 acres in Franklin, Tennessee, I got to design a 15,000-squarefoot pet lodge complete with a stone fireplace and separate enclosures for dogs and cats. I loved combining my love of animals with my design knowledge. 14 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

WHAT COLOR TRENDS HAVE YOU SEEN COME AND GO? I am glad to see the whole gray trend go. I like gray, but I will pair it with more saturated colors. Gray and other neutrals are finally getting pushed out by warmer, earthier, nature-loving colors. WHAT ABOUT DESIGN TRENDS? One thing I’m thrilled to see come on trend is wallpaper. Wallpaper has so many applications and can make such a difference. It adds textures and shapes and forms to a space. SOURCES OF INSPIRATION? I draw inspiration from fabrics and art. I can design a whole room around a piece of fabric or a client’s favorite piece of art. And my own team inspires me. Everyone views the world from a different perspective, and I see what they put together that I wouldn’t have thought of myself. FAVORITE DESIGN TOOL? My paint colors. I have big 14-by-14-inch squares of sample colors actually painted on the squares. It’s not a photograph so you see the true color in a space. WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED ABOUT YOURSELF DURING THE PANDEMIC? To slow down and enjoy being in my own space. I know that my team is so very capable and can handle things. It’s given me a chance to run the company and not run myself ragged.

LIFESTYLE A DAY IN HIS LIFE

By Tonilyn Hornung | Photos by Patti Hartog

Tom Wills talks life after being a chief meteorologist, his love of mysteries, and staying active.

W

hen Tom Wills was WAVE 3 TV’s Chief Meteorologist, a career that spanned from 1969 to 2009, his weather predictions told us when to expect rain, snow, and of course, those beautiful sunny days to come. What he might not have predicted in his own life was enjoying the beauty of a completely open schedule that his retirement is now offering, “The freedom of time is quite good,” Tom says.

RITUALS AND DAILY LIFE “The last 21 years of my working career I had to get up at roughly 3:30 in the morning,” Tom says. This is why he likes not setting that alarm clock every day which gives his morning routine flexibility. After breakfast, Tom and his wife Pam split the daily crossword puzzle. “She does the top half and I do the bottom half,” Tom says. And after their morning ritual, he might be off to the gym to get in a workout of lifting weights or using the treadmill, or he might head out to do some yard work and tend to his garden. In between activities, Tom fits in some time for another great pastime — reading. He is an avid reader and says, “I normally read two newspapers a day.” Not stopping there, Tom is a member of an online book club. “I lean towards mysteries and things of that nature,” he says. As a Sherlock Holmes fan, Tom has read most (if not all) of the original canon and has delved into some of the more recent novels of the Sherlock mythology. RELISHING RETIREMENT Traveling is something that Tom and Pam make a priority in their lives. “My wife and I really like cruising,” Tom says. Being a selfproclaimed “cold weather person,” and a guy who really loves the snow, Tom truly appreciated taking cruises to places like Norway and Iceland. “I just love that part of the world,” Tom begins, “Norway was fantastic with all the greenery, forests, and the snow melting down the mountainsides.” Tom’s love of cold weather fronts and forecasts hasn’t left him since leaving WAVE 3. He says, “I still keep up with the weather,” and since retiring this passion mixes in with all his other interests. He still maintains a weather blog but insists it’s “nothing highly formal,” only updating it when inspiration (or lightning) strikes. TOM’S ADVICE Tom’s recommendation is to stay moving. “As you get older you have to keep physically active,” Tom says. Whether it’s walking around the house a lot or walking around the block, Tom explains that staying active is beneficial because your physical flexibility can begin to decline as you age. 16 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Tom enjoys working crossword puzzles. This 1,000 piece puzzle of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball stadium was particularly challenging, but being a true St. Louis fan, Tom enjoyed the challenge and completed the puzzle.

This paper weather map, the type used in Tom’s early days as a meteorologist, was presented to Tom on his retirement from WAVE 3 TV. Tom keeps up with the weather and maintains a weather blog, while of course utilizing online tools.

Tom is holding a train car with RDG, the symbol for the Reading Railroad in Reading, PA, Tom’s hometown and a tribute to his grandfather, who worked for the Reading Railroad.

PASSIONS FEEDING THE SOUL

O

ur hobbies and passions feed our soul. They’re proven to reduce stress, foster social connections, and boost life skills. Who knew that woodworking hobby you took up a few years ago would also improve your coordination and focus? (And you thought you just liked making footstools for friends.) Sometimes these hobbies come into our lives earlier and sometimes later, but the passions we find have a way of finding us.

GARDENING IS EVER-PRESENT HOPE Debby Levine of Crescent Hill says her passion for gardening has always been part of her life. This love for all things green and growing was passed on to her by her mother, “I totally absorbed it and have developed it,” she says. Debby earned her masters degree in botany in the early 1980s, but didn’t have a chance to get her hands dirty using it until her move to Louisville 17 years ago. “The passion was there but the opportunity wasn’t,” she says. Since moving here, Debby has volunteered and taken classes at Yew Dell Botanical Gardens and also works to cultivate her own backyard garden. A lover of “interesting plants,” Debby isn’t easily discouraged when her gardening ideas don’t first take root. “It’s kind of like the ever-present hope that keeps people gardening,” Debby says. Even in areas where nothing grows, she continues to try different flowers in the hopes something will thrive. “You have to keep trying and pay attention. The plants will tell you if they’re happy or not,” Debby says.

Libby Rosenberger is holding a needlepoint ornament she made which placed second in a local competition.

BUZZING WITH INSPIRATION The great outdoors is buzzing with inspiration, and this is where Libby Rosenberger of Spencer County, Kentucky, discovered her passion for beekeeping. Libby, a retired math teacher, has always been afraid of insects, but when her neighbor mentioned they acquired some bees, she decided that was a project she’d like to try. A “laid-back beekeeper,” she enjoys caring for them and says, “It’s fascinating just to see the intricacies of their civilization.” Not stopping with one hobby, Libby also enjoys needlework. She says joining an embroidery group was a wonderful way to expand her social circle and also learn about a world of sewing she never knew existed. Plus, the intricacy inherent in the craft teaches her patience and offered her another surprising benefit: “I think it makes your eyesight better. I had to use a magnifier and a light in the beginning, but I'm not as dependent on it as I was,” Libby says.


BREAD AND BEER Finding a passion all his own, Libby’s husband, Greg Rosenberger is a bread baker and a beer brewer. Greg worked for AT&T for over 41 years before retiring but his love of brewing has been brewed into his DNA. During prohibition his grandmother made her own beer, and he’s taken this love and distilled it into a 25-year hobby. Today, Libby and Greg’s passions mix when Libby adds honey from her hive to Greg’s latest home brew, “This brews a type of mead beer called a braggot,” Greg says. Greg’s bread baking is a newer addition, and he uses this in his fermentation. This is an activity Greg appreciates because, “This process is really slow. You’re taking the commercial process out of it and that’s what got me started on it,” Greg says. Hobbies take the rush out of life. They help us focus on quality time with ourselves and our loved ones. “I want to do something where I can just relax and enjoy life, you know?” Greg says. So whether you find your passion in nature, closer to home, or with new friends, know there’s one out there for you waiting to “bee” discovered. Fresh from Greg Rosenberger’s oven, a boule of sourdough bread that he baked.

PASSIONS I LOVE MY...

By Megan S. Willman | Photo by Erika Doll

Treasure Hunting with her GPS

“OVER THE YEARS, THOSE HUNTS HAVE LED US TO PLACES, PEOPLE, AND EXPERIENCES WE WOULD NEVER HAVE HAD OTHERWISE.”

W

hen I asked Veronica Rife to tell me what item she loved most, she knew the answer right away. “It’s my hand-held Garmin GPS, and I use it for geocaching,” says Veronica. “Aside from the people I love, it makes me happier than anything in the world.” Veronica is recently retired from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and has a love for science and learning, the outdoors, and travel. It’s no surprise that her most-loved item connects each of these elements. If you’re not familiar with geocaching, it is an outdoor activity where people use a GPS or mobile device to hide and seek treasures — geocaches — at specific locations all over the world. One can easily download the free app and begin to hunt for caches right away. Each participant’s online account contains a map with little green dots to indicate treasure yet to be found or yellow smiley faces for those already located. To date, Veronica has found more than 1,200 geocaches. Veronica’s brother introduced her whole family to the concept in 2011 when geocaching was just getting started. “At the time, I didn’t have a GPS device; I didn’t even have a cell phone,” Veronica says. Her family had a great time together hunting for the cache that day, and Veronica hasn’t stopped

24 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

since. Veronica’s primary cache-hunting partner is her husband Scott. She regularly takes her mom, her friends, and now, even her new granddaughter Lillian has been introduced to the fun. “When my friends agree to travel with me, they know geocaching stops are going to happen along the way,” Veronica says. “Over the years, those hunts have led us to places, people, and experiences we would never have had otherwise.” While looking for a cache in Barcelona, Veronica met a couple from Germany and another person from Great Britain who were also on the hunt. “It was an impromptu international gathering!” Veronica says. “We found the cache together and all went away happy.” She’s found caches in 34 U.S. states and 16 different countries. Even while assigned to work in Afghanistan with the Corps, Veronica found time to search for a few treasures. Those who geocache can not only look for items but can hide them for others as well. Veronica hid a small ceramic turtle while working at the locks and dams in Illinois one year. Myrtle, as she was named, had a message attached inviting the finder to help her travel the world. Before disappearing from the geocache grid, Myrtle made it to Germany, Italy, and around the U.S. for a total of 5,274 miles!

PASSIONS ELECTRIFY YOUR RIDE

By Tonilyn Hornung | Photos by Erika Doll

Electrify Your Ride

Same high-intensity workouts as traditional bikes without the strain.

R

emember what it felt like taking those training wheels off your bicycle? That feeling of nervousness downshifts in your stomach to reveal those first feelings of giddy independence. Mark Noland knew he loved cycling when he first started riding his own bike at the age of 6, but it never became a big hobby. Then more recently, when reading about electric bikes, he was intrigued. Similar to a regular bicycle, an electric bike pedals and manages like all the bikes we used to ride down the street to our friend’s house. Don’t be fooled, though, the electric feature isn’t there to replace the human element, but to assist it. The electric aspect makes hills and strong winds more manageable so you can travel further without having to pull over or becoming too tired. With all these fantastic biking benefits, Mark wanted to check one out. “When I was traveling with family in the Netherlands, I had the opportunity to try one,” Mark says. At that point, Mark says he knew this type of bike was going to become popular worldwide. Upon his return home, he began researching the electric bike field and found a brand that met his high standards. “I bought two bikes. One for myself and one for my wife.” And the rest is history. Pedego Louisville on Bardstown Road was established by Mark and his wife, Jo Anne in 2018. Pedego Louisville’s website states it’s “the go-to destination for electric bike sales, rentals, tours, and service in Kentucky and Southern Indiana.” When stopping into the Pedego Louisville store in the 26 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Highlands, you might be met by Mark or perhaps one of his sons. “Three of my sons are involved in the store,” Mark says. Regardless of who greets you at the store, the first question you may be asked is, “Have you ever struggled to go uphill?” Mark takes time out to explain how cycling uphill differs with an electric bike, “The typical electric bike gives you extra power with pedaling so instead of struggling you pedal normally.” The good news about biking, in general, is that it builds leg strength, promotes healthy weight management, works core muscles, and can boost mental health. According to the Pedego website, recent studies have shown that electric bikers can get the same high-intensity workouts similar to those on traditional bikes but without feeling as physically strained. Mark says an electric bike can range in price anywhere from $1,500 to $4,500. Most models hover around the $3,000 price range. Once you’ve found the bike for you, the good news is Louisville has no shortage of trails to explore. One of Mark’s favorites is located in Cherokee Park. “It’s the Cherokee Park Loop Trail. It’s two and a half miles without any traffic,” Mark says. Biking has many rewarding health and mental benefits to offer its riders. Electric bikes offer these same benefits plus some extras for those interested in a little added electric boost when needed—not to mention it’s just plain fun. “The greatest reward I’ve found in opening my shop is putting smiles on people’s faces,” Mark says.

PASSIONS BOOK CLUB

By Vanessa Hutchison

Join a Book Club THE LOUISVILLE BOOK BABES TACKLE A DOUBLE FEATURE!

W

hat do you do when your book club is on a break for the winter months to accommodate families for the holidays? You double down when you get back together, of course! That’s what the Louisville Book Babes did this spring for their first book club back together as a group. Since the group had trouble deciding on a book to read, they chose to read two. However, while The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey and The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, by V.E. Schwab, are very different stories, they both deal with the theme of longing for human connection, which seems all too appropriate in the midst of a global pandemic. WHAT ARE THESE BOOKS ABOUT? In The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, a young woman who wants to live forever makes a deal with the devil that she may have her wish, but as a consequence, she must be forgotten by everyone she encounters. She spends her whole long life traveling and experiencing all that life has to offer, but is unable to form real relationships with people since they don’t remember her for long. But one day, she encounters a man who does remember her, and all of that changes. While V.E. Schwab’s book jumps through time and space to tell Addie’s story, the characters at the center of The Snow Child stay put in the novel’s brutal time period and even more brutal location. Set in 1920s Alaska, The Snow Child is full of hardship and harsh realities. But in that space, there is also magic. Eowyn Ivey’s take on magical realism, at times, feels like what might happen if Nobel Prize winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez had grown up in a more wintry climate, rather than the Colombian heat. In the novel, a couple, Jack and Mabel, suffer from extreme loneliness in the Alaskan wilderness, and build a snow child during the first snowfall. When the snow child disappears, it is replaced by a real child named Faina who becomes a part of their family and brings light and hope back into their home.

HOW ARE THESE BOOKS SIMILAR? Both of these novels deal with isolation, but Addie and Mabel deal with that isolation quite differently. While Addie keeps pressing forward, Mabel becomes drawn into herself with despair. This is so interesting because if we look at the people around us, this is how they too have been handling social isolation for the last year — some of them more positively than others. These characters cope with this isolation with magic, which is something that is unavailable to the rest of us. But they also cope with love, which is available in abundance. WHY THESE BOOKS? The Book Babes considered other books as well, including An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks, and The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted by Robert Hillman. But when the vote was torn between The Snow Child and The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, the Babes just decided to read both, and we are so glad they did!

PASSIONS THINGS TO DO

Lunch Plus One By Lucy M. Pritchett | Photos by Melissa Donald

F

or a summer’s day out, consider beginning with a visit to Paristown, a neighborhood where modern and historic blend beautifully. Enjoy a box lunch at a table in the dappled shade of Christy’s Garden (nod to philanthropist Christy Brown and her vision for the area) and discover treasures galore at a vintage urban market.

Lunch Plus One is a simple outing to enjoy with friends or visiting relatives or guests.

THE LUNCH:

The Café If you are ready to venture out, a place to begin is The Café, 711 Brent Street. Located across the street from its former location, the restaurant has reenvisioned itself and has moved from bohemian chic to industrial cool. With exposed brick walls, concrete floor, and soaring ceiling, the casual eatery features all new tables and sturdy chairs—a change from the funky and sometimes wobbly furnishings at the old location (that, of course, added to its charm). More good news: The food is still served in generous portions and is very tasty. My friend and I each ordered a Combo #3 that includes a half sandwich, soup, one side, and a cookie. I had the classic chicken salad and fruit while she enjoyed a benedictine/bacon sandwich with slaw. We took our meals across the herringbone-patterned brick street to Christy’s Garden, chose a table in the shade, and ate our fill. 30 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

The Café 711 Brent Street Current Hours: Monday–Wednesday 8am–5pm Thursday–Sunday 8am–9pm 502.589.9191 thecafetogo.com Call for reservations


THE PLUS ONE:

Fleur de Flea Vintage Market While you are waiting to pick up your lunch, take the opportunity to browse around Stoneware & Co. which is connected to the restaurant’s main entrance. After lunch, visit the Fleur de Flea Vintage Market just a block or two from the restaurant. Depending on the ages in your party, this will either be a trip down memory lane or a glimpse into an earlier time—think rotary phones, needlepoint purses, and colorful clothing. Over 150 vendor booths feature just about anything imaginable from jewelry to furniture to books to plants to art and who knows what else. Vintage surprises at every turn. A veritable feast of Flea!

Fleur de Flea Vintage Market 947 E. Breckinridge Street Corner of Breckinridge Street and Swan Street Current Hours: Thursday-Saturday 11am-6pm Sunday noon-6pm 502.533.2688 thefleurdeflea.com

PASSIONS VOLUNTEER

By Kym Voorhees Raque | Photo by Patti Hartog

Following an Art Passion: “Feeling So Alive Every Day”

A

love of art, history, and education are what drew Sarah O’Koon to the Speed Art Museum where she works as a volunteer docent. Looking back over her life, it seems inevitable that she would choose to spend her time among the beautiful exhibits, bringing them to life for visitors. Sarah moved from North Carolina to Louisville and started teaching history at the Louisville Collegiate School. Then after her son was born, she spent time creating the Cardinal Kitchen business with her husband Chuck. In her early 40s, Sarah decided to follow her art passion — and graduated from the University of Louisville about 10 years later with a Master of Fine Arts and became an art therapist. After retirement in 2012, a friend who volunteered at the Speed encouraged Sarah to apply to the year-long docent training program. WHY IS THE SPEED MUSEUM A GOOD FIT FOR YOU? As a history teacher, painter, and art therapist I understand and have a real appreciation for art and what it can do for people, and how it can be used as a tool to heal. I knew I had all these skills and a love of art, and now I can put it all together. As a docent you can choose which exhibits and tours you’d like to lead. My interest is in the special (temporary) exhibits. It allows me to learn and explore something new and then share it with visitors. OTHER ART-RELATED WORK? My husband Chuck and I are also members of the Contemporary Art Collectors group. The group travels with the Speed curator once a year to view pieces and consider which to purchase. We haven’t been able to go on all the trips, but the curator will bring back pieces to show the entire group. We research the pieces and then vote on which we think the curator should purchase. My husband and I love to travel and have been collecting art for more than 20 years.

32 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

CAN YOU SHARE A FAVORITE MEMORY? In 1993, we took a trip to New York (with the Contemporary Art Collectors) to visit the studio of Black contemporary artist Lorna Simpson. The year before, the group had purchased one of her pieces, Same, which is a photo series that addresses the facelessness of Black women in society. That trip was instrumental in our feeling personally involved in the acquisition of an important piece of art at the Speed and our deep interest in seeking out contemporary art wherever we traveled. HOW HAS VOLUNTEERING ENHANCED YOUR LIFE? The lectures at the Speed allow me to continue to learn about art and history. Keeping your mind active is important. It also provides me with an outlet to meet other people who share my interests. We have 60 docents at the museum, and most are in their 60s and 70s (Sarah is 77). We all say we’ll be volunteering into our 90s. It’s a different sense of life expectancy when you feel so alive every day.

So Many Benefits From Movement Classes

S

teve Walsh was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2014 while living in Michigan and ready to retire. Shortly after his diagnosis, he moved back home to Kentucky to be near family, but did not waste any time making movement a priority, becoming a regular class participant at the Norton Neuroscience Institute (NNI). The NNI Resource Center provides exercise, education, and therapeutic classes for individuals with any neurological disease, including movement disorders, according to NNI Program Coordinator, Heather Osborne.

Steve participates regularly in the Rock Steady Boxing classes and Tai Chi. With Tai Chi, “I benefit from improved control over balance and walking. Definitely better than sitting on the couch for an hour!” Steve shares. “The boxing class requires more elements of cardio and strength training. Improving and maintaining strength and muscle mass is required for balance.” The NNI Resource Center offers many classes, including Tai Chi, Yoga, and Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement. In addition, individuals with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease have tailored classes, including yoga, fitness, movement and mobility, creative dance, and boxing classes. While each of these classes offers a different approach, each has an intentional focus on mobility and control. Extensive research has been done in the realm of movement disorders and show that Tai Chi and Yoga, when practiced consistently, have shown improved balance, spatial awareness, reduced fall risk, improved management of stress and anxiety, as well as improved cognitive function, according to Natalie Vance, a physical therapist with Norton Healthcare. Steve includes not just the exercise classes as part of his proactive approach to his diagnosis, but also monthly support groups and educational programs offered through the Parkinson’s Support Center. The Parkinson’s Support Center is a resource offered free of charge to anyone diagnosed with the disease. Other NNI programs are available free of charge to any Norton patient. “It’s easy to become isolated. In support groups and exercise classes, there is a sense of community,” Steve says. “Every exercise class I go to, I see people that inspire me to keep doing what I need to do.” An unofficial advocate of the many programs offered through the NNI, Steve says he attends as many classes as he can and tries to help others find classes that will help them through their everyday challenges.

Tai Chi consists of slow, intentional movements that combine mind and body, with an emphasis on control of movement and breathing. Yoga practice works with breath and meditation, and may increase body awareness, release of muscle spasticity, and improved coordination and balance. The Feldenkrais Method uses gentle movement intended to increase your range and ease of movement, flexibility, and coordination.

WELLNESS IT’S HECK GETTING OLD

By Tami Pyles

SOLUTION #1 OVER-THE-COUNTER TREATMENTS Topical creams, such as Lotrimin and Lamisil, can be purchased at drugstores. However, Dr. Hill says most people do not see much improvement with these options. Instead, he recommends a daily application of Vicks VapoRub to the affected toes. “This is not going to treat the fungus, but it helps to keep the nail soft,” says Dr. Hill.

Trying to Hide Your Feet?

A

re your nails discolored, thick, and ragged? You may be dealing with nail fungus. Fungal infections of the nail are caused when bacteria are introduced to the nail bed. Bacteria live everywhere, including in your shoes, making it easy for your nail bed to be exposed. While completely preventing a fungal nail infection is hard, there are steps you can take to mitigate your risk, including choosing shoes with breathable material, wearing sweat-absorbing socks, and sanitizing nail clippers. If your nails are abnormal in appearance, don’t automatically assume it is a fungal issue. Other health issues can be the cause. “Accurate diagnosis is first and foremost,” says Dr. Josh Hill of Bluegrass Podiatric Management and Orthopedic Surgeons & Podiatry of Harrison County. “Patients often incorrectly assume they have nail fungus and begin over-the-counter treatments that have no effect,” says Dr. Hill. While nail fungus can present a cosmetic issue, typically it is not linked to other major health issues.

42 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

SOLUTION #2 CLINICAL REMEDIES There are also options you can discuss with your doctor, including prescription drugs and procedures. Prescription drugs have proven to be more effective than over-the-counter topical options. Oral Lamisil and Jublia are two of the most commonly prescribed drugs to treat nail fungus. You can also opt for laser therapy. However, this is an expensive option not covered by insurance. In some instances, removing the infected toenail will be the best treatment. Dr. Hill recommends considering this option if you are experiencing pain or other physical issues related to the infection, rather than for cosmetic purposes.

CAREGIVER TALKING ABOUT CHALLENGES

C

aregiving is an act of love and compassion, but it comes with challenges. Sometimes caregiving requires families to change their living arrangements. In other cases, family members change their professional lives to meet their loved one’s needs. In every caregiving situation, it is essential that the individuals providing care give themselves permission to take breaks and de-stress. COMBINED LIVING ARRANGEMENTS There can be positives and negatives for family caregivers who maintain their own separate living spaces. While it is a totally separate space to get away to, it can also mean more time spent on the road driving to see and care for the loved one, including late nights or early mornings. Some families don’t have the option of having separate living arrangements such as the Kolb family in rural La Grange, Kentucky. Mary and Jim Kolb built their walkout house to be wheelchair accessible when their daughter, Mallory, experienced an anoxic brain injury at the age of 7. However, “IT TAKES A LOT OF they also tried to be forward-thinking about their design COMMUNICATION plan. “[I said] Let’s just build [the basement] like a house so the elders could live there as needed,” Mary says. In AND PLANNING. addition to multiple bedrooms downstairs, there is a family room, a full kitchen, a laundry area, and bathrooms. EMOTIONALLY, Now in her mid-30s, Mallory lives in the basement IT’S ALWAYS A area, but soon after her childhood injury, her paternal grandparents lived with the Kolb family to help lend a hand CHALLENGE.” with her care as well as tend to the needs of her sisters, Emily and Jessie, while Mary and her husband worked. After Mary’s mother broke her hip and couldn’t live alone anymore, Mary moved her into the downstairs part of the house. She says non-family caregivers who would help with Mallory were also very helpful in the care of her mom. A background in occupational therapy has helped Mary manage some aspects of caregiving, but she says, “It takes a lot of communication and planning. Emotionally, it’s always a challenge.” Over the years, she found that endurance horseback riding has provided her both a physical and emotional release for her stress. She gets away for several days with fellow equestrians, camps, and rides her horse to renew herself. DISTANCE AND DISTRACTION Natasha Reece has been acting as a caregiver for her grandfather, Jerry Whelan, who has frontotemporal dementia, since November 2020 after his wife, Alma, was admitted to the hospital with COVID-19. The family looked into hiring outside help, but the costs were quite high. It made sense for Natasha, who had been in the social work field, to become his caretaker, although she says that early on, she actually acted as a caretaker to both of her grandparents since it took Alma months to recover. In addition to cleaning, cooking, and running errands, Natasha was the official coordinator for her family. She had a notebook with instructions for her extended family to read for the times when she wasn’t there. Now that her grandmother is healthier, Natasha primarily coordinates activities to keep her grandfather’s dementia from getting worse, as well as to alleviate stress on her grandmother. While not every day is great, “I’m getting to spend time with my grandparents. I don’t know a lot of other 28-year-olds that get to do that,” she says. She is big into meditation so she tries to turn to those techniques whenever she begins to feel overwhelmed, but says, “There have been times when I’m like, ‘I’m going to do laundry.’” Just getting a few minutes away to the basement can provide a little nugget of mental refreshment. 46 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Like a lot of caregivers, Natasha has learned the art of distraction to help ease tensions for both herself and her grandparents. “I’ll try to pull him away and do something. I find Papaw chores,” she says. This keeps him active and gives everyone a chance to calm down. “Right now I need to clean out my car, and I’m saving that chore for when I really need to bring Papaw outside,” she says. Being easy-going helps Natasha keep her stress in check when caregiving for her grandfather. “I don’t need to bring him into my reality; I can meet him. If he starts talking about somebody that’s been dead for 10 years as if he just talked to him on the phone today, I don’t care. I’m not going to try to correct him,” she says. Such a conversation would be stressful for them both and wouldn’t do any good.

When she needs a break from her caregiving duties, Natasha Reece spends time in nature which offers a great space to meditate and gather her thoughts.

CAREGIVER INSPIRATION

By Bob Mueller

When Disappointment Rains Down How to live victoriously anyway.

I

t has been said that every person’s life is a diary in which he or she means to write one story, and is forced to write another. That is, we plan for one way; we are forced to travel another. But what shall we say of those crushing disappointments in life which do not turn into good fortune? Not every prison door opens out into centuries of service, not all valleys of the shadow of death lead to the brightness of the morning. Some of our disappointments we are forced to live with all the way. When our little children go to bed, they do not mind having the light turned off, if the door is left open just a tiny bit. The realization that their mother or father is close by frees them from their fears. So with us. No matter how hard the struggle may be, how dark the future is, the realization of a divine presence and power frees us from the bondage of fear. Isn’t it true that most of our worries are borrowed from some other day? We worry about mountains we will never have to climb, about streams we will never have to cross, about situations we will never have to meet. Sometimes it takes a failure, or an accident, or some setback to make one think. Some people never look up until they are on their backs. Years ago I stood on a bridge over the great Mississippi river. Then I saw all of the Mississippi delta land. And I thought of how time and again that land had been flooded and of how every flood was a disappointment to a lot of people. Houses were wrecked and crops were destroyed. But each flood left a deposit of soil, and today that land is one of the richest sections in all the world. The flood of disappointment hurts, but it leaves life richer and better when it is rightly borne. We believe God heals in two ways – through the science of medicine and surgery and through the science of faith and prayer. And those two ways are not in conflict with each other; they are wings of the same bird. When we stand at our full height in the face of obstacles, when we refuse to shrink back but instead give our own best, when we sincerely say to life, “I come to you in the name of the Lord,” inhibitions are taken away, the tangles are cleared and the clouds of life are lifted. There are vast numbers of people who are defeated in their lives. Their conqueror may be some wrong action, or it may be a mental evil, such as fear of worry. I am convinced that no person need be defeated by anything. I declare we have within reach the power to live victoriously.

48 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

YOU WILL LIVE VICTORIOUSLY IF YOU REMEMBER THESE FOUR THINGS: 1. Never forget you are important. Because of who you are and what you are, you can afford to believe in yourself and depend on yourself. 2. Remember that you are needed. There is at least one important work to be done that will not be done unless you do it. We all give ourselves to something. Think bigger thoughts of what your life can amount to. 3. Remember that there are several people in you. You are a good person, but you also do bad things. You shrink back from life, but you also face a hard situation with calmness and courage. You have temptations to sink into some muddle of living, but you also reach for the stars. Within you lives one who is careless and doesn’t care, another who is greedy and selfish, another who is controlled by passions, and many other selves. But never forget, within you is always a best self. 4. Hope in the divine. When you believe, you have hope. As the sun drives the clouds away, so hope chases away our blues.

Tech that Helps Mobility

W

hen mobility is a challenge, tasks that were once simple such as getting into the bath or shower, become not only more difficult, but also more dangerous, as balance wanes. There are a number of useful assistive technology devices that make getting into the bath or shower a safer experience. Today’s Transitions talked with Katherine Autin, CEO of Parkinson Partners and Visionary Caregivers, two organizations devoted to helping the aging and disabled as they transition into the later stages of life. Katherine shared some of the technology that is helping people remain safe and comfortable in their homes for longer.

A WATCH THAT KNOWS YOU HAD A FALL It is important for falls to be detected quickly so that medical teams can respond without delay. This is the primary function of the The Kanega Watch by UnaliWear, a small device that is worn on the wrist and looks like an ordinary smartwatch. The Kanega Watch senses if the wearer falls, and immediately sends emergency services to help. The device is completely waterproof, allowing it to be worn around the clock. It connects to a live-response operator 24/7/365 and has a one-time setup fee of $149, plus $59.99 monthly subscription fee.

A LIFT OUT OF THE BATHTUB If you need additional help getting into the tub, the Bathmaster Sonaris2 Bath Lift may be a solution. The seat stays in the bathtub, and raises and lowers the user into the water with the press of a button, much like a lift chair. The sturdy, plastic construction has a 375 lb. weight capacity and is easy to set up and use. It is priced at around $900 for both the lift and the attached reclining chair.

UNFREEZING FOR NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS For those with Parkinson’s, or other neurological disorders, the risk of falls becomes even greater, due to the way that the brain causes the body to spontaneously freeze and be unable to move for extended periods of time. Cue1 by Charco Neurotech is a device that has shown success in helping the wearer to “restart”, or regain movement after freezing. It is a small button that attaches to the user’s sternum with medical adhesive and utilizes pulses and focused vibration to interrupt brain patterns and reduce symptoms of slowness or freezing, resulting in improved movement. It also offers smartphone connectivity to track symptoms, as well as medication alerts, and has been called a “game changer” in increasing the mobility and safety of Parkinson’s patients. This product is currently on a waitlist, and no pricing information is available, but Charco Neurotech hopes to release the Cue1 in Europe and the U.S. by the end of the year. 50 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

A Tragedy, A Decision, and How it Changed This Family

M

ost adult children expect to see their parents grow older. Their parents may face a terminal cancer diagnosis or suffer a stroke; they may simply become more frail over time. Michelle Tupper Butler saw her father, Frank Tupper, go through an experience she wouldn’t wish on anyone. That traumatic event changed the course of his life, her life, her family’s life, and her professional endeavors.

THE FALL Frank Tupper was a theologian and one of the founding faculty members at Wake Forest University School of Divinity. He had also been a single father to his two children, Michelle and Elgin, following the death of his wife in 1983. Michelle says she and her father had an extremely close relationship. Frank had been retired all of two months when he tripped and fell in the dark at his home. “He fell on his face and hyperextended his neck. His cervical vertebrae crushed his spinal cord,” she says. “I didn’t find him for 16 hours.” He was on a ventilator for two weeks while doctors tried to manage the swelling. Surgeons removed the bone debris from his spinal cord and inserted rods into his neck to stabilize it. Michelle and her brother took 12-hour shifts to stay with him at the hospital. Frank was taken off the ventilator but had to have a tracheotomy and a feeding tube. He moved over to Frazier Rehab where he stayed for a month. To say this was nerve-wracking is an understatement. Michelle had a full-time job at a law firm, two small children, and had been dealing with her own serious health issues for months. Although the situation was traumatic for everyone, the fact that Frank could still communicate was a blessing. “His brain was perfectly fine. We had no plan. There was no will, no power of attorney, no anything. I didn’t know what any of these words meant, and I had a law degree from Georgetown,” she says. Her dad was able to let her know that he wanted to live. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? While Frank was at Frazier, Michelle says things got real because she and her brother had to determine the next steps. She couldn’t take care of him in her house. “His power chair 52 Summer 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

wouldn’t even fit in my house,” she says. They knew Frank couldn’t go back to his own house. “We started weighing what we were going to do because he didn’t want to live in a nursing home,” she says. “Yet he couldn’t be alone.” Michelle’s husband, Brandon, came up with the idea of buying a house that would accommodate their family and Frank. They sold Frank’s house and used that amount as the down payment on a house they could all live in. “Everything had to happen in a certain order and in a certain time period,” she says. Michelle had to reduce her hours at the law firm so she could clean out her father’s house to sell and then get her own house ready for sale, plus continue keeping tabs on her dad who did have to go into a nursing home for four months while they sold and bought houses. “My dad kept every single piece of paper that ever came into his life,” she says. “I found his taxes dating back to 1967.” It was a full-time job to clean out his four-bedroom house. His books alone filled 500 boxes. Purchasing the new home didn’t mean every issue was resolved. Fortunately, Brandon is a carpenter and contractor so he was able to tackle a lot of the changes that had to be made to the house. “He was able to widen doorways and put a threshold in,” she says. Michelle had to get approval from the neighborhood homeowners’ association for Brandon to build a ramp. “Setting up his room was a big learning experience, and then we had to hire in-home help,” she says. She says the scariest night of her life was when she brought her oldest child, Silas, home from the hospital after his birth. The second scariest night of her life was when she brought her quadriplegic father home to the new house.


“I THINK WHEN TAKING THIS ON [THE CARE OF PARENTS] YOU NEED TO HAVE A VERY REAL, HONEST CONVERSATION WITH YOUR SPOUSE, THE PARENT, BUT THE HARDEST ONE IS WITH YOURSELF, AND BEING HONEST WITH YOURSELF ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN AND CANNOT DO.” — MICHELLE TUPPER BUTLER

THE CHALLENGES “We hadn’t anticipated the lack of privacy and the loss of our family unit,” Michelle says. Frank was in the master bedroom just off the living room which meant it often seemed like her family of four was living in a fish bowl. Plus they had caregivers in the home at all times which impacted their family interactions and routines. Michelle was the de facto medical trainer and go-between which also took more of her time than she expected. Her brother drove across town every night to the shared home so that Michelle and her family could eat dinner together and do the bedtime routine. She also had to keep track of any and all spending on Frank’s medical care. Her dad had a robust retirement account, but it was drained in three years. “His care was between $8,000$10,000 a month,” she says. THE SILVER LINING Michelle was never grateful for her dad’s injury, but there were things she found tremendously important from the experience of living with him. “My kids are not afraid of disabled people,” she says. “If Dad’s legs would get askew, Silas would run over, pick up his feet, and put them in the right position.” Plus, her kids were able to see their grandfather and spend time with him in a way they might not have under other circumstances. “Betty would go in and read with him, and they’d watch Peppa Pig together,” Michelle says.

CHANNELING EXPERIENCE INTO HELPING Prior to her dad’s injury, Michelle’s legal work was focused on government investigations and allegations related to fraud and the False Claims Act. However, from having to navigate Frank’s care, she became committed to using her legal expertise to help those whose loved ones have experienced random lifechanging accidents or are trying to get protections in place for aging parents. She opened her own law firm focused on these issues. “I learned the Medicare rules really quickly. It really makes a difference having an advocate,” she says. “I wish I had known the availability of long-term care benefits if you have your finances structured correctly,” she says. “Three years was all it took to empty [dad’s] retirement.” She remains grateful that despite her dad’s injury, they were able to put a plan in place so that when he developed pneumonia in 2020 and went into hospice care, she was freed from having to make decisions that might have haunted her. “When he died, I got to just be his daughter. I knew I was executing his decision,” she says. “I think when taking this on [the care of parents] you need to have a very real, honest conversation with your spouse, the parent, but the hardest one is with yourself, and being honest with yourself about what you can and cannot do,” she says.

Home Health Care refers to care provided in a person’s home. Medical Home Health Care is a licensed level of care that provides nursing care and personal care. (These agencies also provide non-medical care.) Non-medical Home Health Care agencies in Kentucky must be certified. Agencies in Indiana must be licensed. They can assist with the self-administration of medications or treatments, provide limited personal care, serve as companions who prepare light meals and tidy homes, and may offer transportation or errand services.

CAREGIVER PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS

By Lindsay McDonald

YOUR LOVED ONE SHOULDN’T BE MISERABLE As a physician with Hosparus Health, I frequently address the misconception that choosing comfort will shorten life expectancy. In reality, many patients live the same amount of time — or even longer — when they are not miserable! Palliative care is a medical specialty that focuses on meticulous symptom management and relief of suffering. It provides an extra layer of support that improves quality of life and allows patients to create more moments and special memories with the people who matter most to them. Palliative care is available at any age and any stage of illness, not exclusively in the final months or weeks. During my career, I have witnessed many examples of patients living longer and better when they receive specialty palliative care earlier in their diagnosis. Relief of suffering does not have to wait until the very end of life. —Lori Earnshaw, Senior Hospice and Palliative Medicine Physician, Hosparus Health

WHEN IN DOUBT, REACH OUT

So many people are lonely. Here are some ways to reach out to people you know. 1. Go old school and send a letter or card, and include new photos for them to enjoy. 2. If they have access to a phone or device that allows for a video call, use it for chats or to read them a book. 3. Ask them how they are doing, what they are doing to fill their time, and if there is anything you can do. —Elisabeth Knight, Clinical Manager, MSSW, Caring Excellence Today's Transitions / Summer 2021 65

CAREGIVER PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS

By Lindsay McDonald

CONNECT WITH CHORES Patience, patience, patience is needed when caregiving. There are many things that I could probably do faster; however, I let them do it. It gives purpose and meaning in their life to help out. Even if it’s not the way I would do it, I let them help. My mom will help fold laundry, but it will not fit into the drawer, so I just wait until she goes to bed and refold the clothes. —Cathy Wise, personal caregiver SEARCH ONLINE FOR INTERACTIVE LISTINGS

SERVE UP SOME COMFORT Comfort can come in many forms. Here are some ideas for those you love: Pictures and Connection: It would be comforting for loved ones to know what’s going on with their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. A digital frame that is set up for family members to send daily or weekly pictures is very easy and therapeutic. Your loved one feels in touch with their family and it creates joy to see those they love. Couple it with a morning phone call saying — check your photo album today, we’ve added something new — to really add some excitement to their day. Food: Dropping off homemade meals in containers ready to pop in the microwave is great. Having snacks and meals labeled for the week in small amounts encourages seniors to eat well and not be intimidated by large portions. Your loved one might be more inclined to eat and drink better if it’s food their family prepared. —Kayla Cook, RN and Owner of Caring Excellence Personalized Home Care Services
