About Curious Elder

This is a newsletter for men and women who are still curious about life and what we can do to make it more enjoyable. It’s a community of open-minded, independent thinkers who like to talk about life, share ideas, and explore new pathways to happiness, contentment, and hope. Curious Elder is a project that began in October 2020. It’s written and curated by me, Lloyd Lemons. 

Born in Detroit in 1952 and married for 46-years, I’m a Dad, and a Grandfather, with a DaVincian curiosity. I’ve been a writer of various descriptions for 40-years. Today, I write Curious Elder in my voice, grounded in my meandering experiences. I write about things that trouble my soul, noteworthy observations, elder challenges, and cultural mysteries. It’s a mix of content that will provide you with a spark for lifelong learning, motivation, and insight to help you make the most of who you are today. 

Free and paid members

You may subscribe to Curious Elder for free or become a paying supporter with a broader range of benefits. A free subscription is always available regardless of income or the ability to pay. Free subscribers receive two Curious Elder newsletters and four discussion threads each month. 

Paid members help cover overhead costs of publishing the newsletter and help make Curious Elder available to everyone. A paid membership allows you to participate in the whole community, including at least two Curious Elder newsletters and four “Talking Points” discussion threads each month, both with access to comments. Also included are the entire Curious Elder archive, member-only content, access to all Special Sections, which currently include “Fitness,” “Interviews,” and “Perks,” and new sections as they become available. Additionally, paid membership includes free admittance to “Community Gatherings” on ZOOM.


Your personal information is safe

Finally, there are no ads, no clickbait, no questionable motives, and no-nonsense. I will never sell, rent, or share your personal information. And, you are never obligated to stay; you may cancel your membership whenever you feel Curious Elder is no longer enjoyable. It’s essential to spend your valuable time reading things that matter. I hope Curious Elder provides the ideas, motivation, and community to help make the most of who you are today. Please, take a few moments to look over the Home Page, and imagine what it can bring to your life.
