About Bob Lowry


Satisfying Retirement in a Changing World is one of the leading retirement lifestyle blogs on the Internet. Over 4.5 million folks just like you have turned to these pages for help, advice, support, and a feeling of community as their retirement journey has taken shape.

While hundreds of blogs focus exclusively on the financial aspects of retirement, here you will find a blend of information and insight on all aspects of retirement: relationship-strengthening, finding your passions, time management, health and healthy living, aging issues, and solutions, as well as financial guidance.

You will also find posts that deal with some of the issues of the day that affect our retirement and the world we live in. After all, after we leave work we don't leave the world or stop having opinions about all sorts of topics. I do not hide my personal feelings in this type of post, but encourage comments and discussions from anyone. Remaining respectful and opening a dialogue, even with those we may disagree is my goal.

On the left-hand sidebar, you will find links to all the archives of articles. Below is a list of labels to help you zero in on posts that match what you are looking for. If you have any specific questions or interests, feel free to e-mail me and I'll be glad to point you toward some specific posts that might help. 

The right-hand sidebar includes a list of other blogs, several also retirement-focused, that I enjoy and recommend to you.

The blog's e-mail is satisfyingretirement at gmail dot com. I will try to respond to your questions or concerns on the same day. 

From our Money Magazine interview
I am a happily married (46 years) retired guy living in Arizona. I have 2 grown daughters who both live in the Phoenix area. I have three adorable grandkids. My Mom died in December 2010, and my Dad left us in early March of 2015. Do I still miss them? Absolutely.

I was a rock and roll DJ in the 1960s and '70s...fun times, then researcher and consultant to radio stations all over the country. 

It was a fascinating career but meant spending many days away from home and flying 100,000 miles a year. Trust me, retirement is much better!

I started blogging in June 2010 as a way to write, and push myself to learn something new. Satisfying Retirement in a Changing World expresses how I feel about my journey through this next stage of my life.

I try to be as honest as I can in my posts. I am sharing my experiences and admitting when things have gone wrong. While I am a glass-half-full kind of person, I have screwed up enough to know there are times when staying positive can be a struggle. I write about those aspects of retirement, too.

Comment on a particular post or write to me using the e-mail address above. I learn as much as I share from that type of feedback. You can also give me ideas for future posts, which I can always use.

Welcome to my blog. Please visit often and become a friend.
