Where will you be on Aug. 21? If you haven’t yet made plans to experience the Great American Eclipse, it’s not too late. The first total solar eclipse to appear in the continental U.S. since 1979 will sweep the country from Oregon down to South Carolina, and those in its diagonal, 70-mile-wide "path of totality" will experience a natural phenomenon like no other. (Looking for a spot to watch? Try one of these campsites.) Watching intently will be a group of baby boomers who got hooked on eclipses in the 1970s. These eclipse chasers have traveled the globe for decades, and their passion continues to sustain them in retirement. They offer the rest of us a good reminder: What will give your life meaning in your next phase?

Best wishes,
