“Everybody has a story,” says Harry J. Getzov, author of gOld and former Jerky Boys manager. His blog, Taking the Scenic Route, stresses the importance of life in the slow lane. Harry’s recent travels have led him to a new endeavor of interviewing elders around the world. Harry has interviewed famous icons such as Ernest Borgnine, Jerry Vale and Louise Hay, as well as, everyday folk. Whether famous or not, each elder conveys a valuable message, pure inspiration.
I recently had the golden opportunity to interview Harry. During our conversation, he insists that we notice our elders and honor their value. Harry’s collection of interviews is proof that our elders hold a treasure for us all. How do we unlock this treasure? “Take the moment to sit down and ask [an elder] a question … I promise you; you are in for a treat!”
