Producer, author, and aging athlete who will rage (with a smile) against the dying of the light.
Robb Lucy is a writer, producer and connecter who lives in Vancouver, B.C. with his wife Kim, and two furniture destroying cats, Luna and Soleil.
Robb began his career of with six years as a producer with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. He then formed his own company, producing mixed media for corporations and governments, and moved on to produce content that now gets kids exercising and smiling in classrooms around the world. He spent 25 years on the local, national and international boards of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and helped develop non-profits in literacy, sports history and cancer awareness. He’s also a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.
Robb and Kim travel often, and have been known to enjoy both one star and five star environs (favorites: Nepal and France). Robb has always found the question, "What will your Legacy be?" an intriguing one, and his book "Legacies aren't just for dead people!" may have you saying "I can do that!" Robb wants to continue creating Legacies that give happiness, connection, purpose and meaning until he's caught in the path of a thundering herd of big, muddy, slightly angry animals (um... details in the book).
Gord Downie has brain cancer and has an advantage: He knows his time is limited. He can now focus his thoughts in front of that cancerous firing squad to create some powerful, joyful legacies for his...
If you're a boomer worried about your legacy: Of course every one of us will have a Legacy. Every breath, every footprint in the sand builds your Legacy. But I think conscious 'Legacy building' should begin early. Like at 40. Heck... 30'd be a good start. But, if you didn't happen to start then, Boomers can begin building life-affirming, connective, fun legacies now!
I watched CBC TV's coverage of Remembrance Day on Parliament Hill Wednesday. Several vets in their late 80s and early 90s told some of their stories. But in a few years, millions of untold stories about our fathers, grandfathers or great grandfathers, will be gone. And simply because we didn't ask to hear them.
I want the party and Prime Minister I vote for to show responsibility with how they spend our money; how they treat all classes of citizens and our environment; with how they paint a picture of the future they want to get to, and how I'm part of it.
I was raised as a good Catholic kid. I was an altar boy, a choirboy, and a boy scout selling Christmas trees with frozen hands on those freezing December evenings to benefit the church. For a while I...
Said Oliver Wendell Holmes: "Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it's because they're always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out." It's a reminder that legacy-building shouldn't wait.
I saw my father cry twice. The first time was just after my mother died. The next time was when I was gathering the stories of his WWII experiences, because I didn't want them to go away. I spent two years gathering my father's stories -- do you know someone whose story you'd hate to disappear?
If you were taken away tomorrow, what do you think your legacy would be? Most of us, it seems, are happy to wait and hear what our eulogist thinks our legacies are. A little late, don'tcha think? I think it's time to lighten up the legacy conversation by creating and enjoying a variety of legacies that you can enjoy now!
