Don Weinhouse, Ph.D.

Don and Marily, Cruise 2006

What can I tell you about myself that you won’t learn from the resume found at the end of this section? Lots!
My passions, besides spending time with my wife, Marilyn and other close family members and friends are many. I love to babysit my new granddaughter, stretch and practice yoga asanas, meditate, play music (flute and recorder), juggle, lead workshops for parents, teachers, and adults seeking more competence and joy, read, laugh, pray, search for dolphins and green flashes at the beach, take long, leisurely bike rides, walk in nature, swim, lift weights… Besides the interests and activities just described, I am now spending some of my time promoting The Boomers’ Guidebook through workshops, interviews, presentations, and author signings; occasionally performing  as “Dr. Don the Juggling Minstrel” (juggling and playing the recorder) at weddings, school assemblies, corporate events, and conferences); and preparing for publication a series of 3rd-4th grade novels about a joking, juggling, recorder playing 4th-grader named Charlie Bubbles (Charlie Joins the Circus, Charlie Directs the Talent Show, and  Charlie Goes to Summer Camp).
