Poetry of Home for Active Adults

Posted On: April, 4, 2018 | Categories: Uncategorized

How brightly in the springtime sun

The plants in the courtyard play

While potted plants upon the porch

Greet neighbors every day.

 

That sunshine illuminates the place

From whence I need not roam

This luxurious and spacious nest

I’ve chosen as my home.

Active Adult Living Designed Grace-fully

Posted On: March, 23, 2018 | Categories: Communities

Twenty years ago, architect Sarah Susanka launched her book, The Not So Big House: A Blueprint for the Way We Really Live, which encourages quality of life over quantity of square feet, floorplans that boast spaces that we use every day, and living spaces that reflect the lifestyle and interests of their owners.

Susanka’s Not So Big concept is particularly applicable to Active Adults, whose desire to downsize (at Windsong, we prefer to call it rightsizing), placing an emphasis on lifestyle, surrounding oneself with the things that bring joy, and using the spaces daily instead of just for special occasions.

Boomers and the “Boundless Universe”

Posted On: March, 16, 2018 | Categories: Uncategorized

On Wednesday, March 14, 2018, the world lost renowned theoretical physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking, who defied the odds and survived more than 50 years after being diagnosed with ALS (“Lou Gehrig’s Disease). Throughout his lifetime, he researched and presented theories that have changed the way we think about our world and the universe, and his personal life taught us not to believe in “limits.”

In honor of his life’s work, and the Boundless Universe theory in particular, we would like to suggest a theory of a Boundless Boomer, or experiencing life to its fullest at a time when “limits” are the perceived norm.

Ready, Set… Grow! Garden Tips for Active Adults

Is it Spring? The temperature sure felt like it yesterday, but today you’re wearing a scarf and heavy coat again. That’s March in Georgia!

If you just can’t wait to start puttering in the courtyard garden, or preparing your containers for the warmer weather, consider these tips from Georgia’s master gardeners:
