One day I had a conversation with my friend Todd about how some things in business seem to come so easily to him. He has a kind of vision around ideas that I can’t relate to at all and it fascinates me.

So one day not long after that, March 4 to be exact, knowing I was going through a rough patch with an injured knee and the sudden death of a friend, he bestowed a gift from that place where his ability to “see” resides. Knowing it would be something I would consider a bit of a production, he created a Facebook page called “Unfettered 50” to complement this blog of the same name. He took that first big step out of my hands, unsolicited, in a grand gesture.

How special is that?

It has taken me a while to wrap my head around the concept of the page — community! — and what that means in terms of how I want it to look and feel and be. But today, with a deadline met early, I had a chance to devote some time to my beloved “Unfettered 50” destination on Facebook.

I would be delighted if you’d go there and “like” it and contribute to it, whether you’re in your 50s or just want to “eavesdrop” on those of us trying to figure it all out. Share something to discuss or just chime in on existing posts.

These beautifully colored feathers you see here represent vibrancy and the freedom to fly, unfettered. Glorious.

Thank you, Todd.
