Welcome to the Autumn 2021 issue!
“It’s the first day of autumn! A time of hot chocolatey mornings, and toasty marshmallow evenings, and, best of all, leaping into leaves!”
Winnie-the-Poo, Pooh’s Grand Adventure, A. A. Milne
Here in Tucson, we don’t see many leaf piles, but like Pooh, I do enjoy our cooler “hot chocolately” mornings!
I hope this issue finds you and yours healthy and safe. I wish you all the best as we head towards the finish line for 2021.
Cheers! – – Steve Pender

Write a note to yourself, using video.
Have you ever made decisions that, well, you wish you hadn’t? Or learned lessons later in life that would have been great to know at a younger age?
Join the club.
I’ve often daydreamed about being able to pick up the phone and call my younger self – perhaps to try and steer him away from an egregious mistake or two, or just to offer an occasional nugget of wisdom, advice, or encouragement. Not sure he’d pay me any mind, but it would be fun to try.
Legacy Videos give you an opportunity to do this, in a way. Because the life lessons and epiphanies you’d like to pass along to your younger self – if captured in a personal legacy video – will inform and inspire the younger generations of your family.
So consider “writing a note to yourself” – on video. This can be part of a larger life story, or a standalone video, perhaps where you directly address your younger self. Family Legacy Video® will be happy to guide you through the process.
