About Us

We are Tony and Barbara Brunner. We are retired and this site is primarily for fellow seniors.

Tony trained as a lawyer, worked in real estate development, and is now a retired California real estate broker, general contractor, builder, and cabinet company owner.

Barbara is a former banker and art gallery owner. We have both traveled widely and lived in many parts of the world, including the UK, the US, and West Indies. In fact, we met in Hong Kong, where we lived for many years.

But we are now retired and our interests have changed. With advancing age but still enjoying life to the fullest, we have a new focus. This is to enhance our living experience on both a physical and mental level by researching and seeking to benefit from all things related to natural health and healing.

Of course, on one level, this includes getting a good night’s sleep. But there are other levels, including the enhancement of the physical environment in which we live. So, in this area, for example, we address the “how-tos” of aging-in-place. This can help us age at home and with grace. So we seek to optimize both our mental and spiritual environment and our physical environment.

We have come to find what it means to foster the natural wholeness of body, mind, and spirit in a variety of ways. These include diet, exercise, natural remedies, yoga, relaxation, mindfulness, meditation, and optimizing habitat. Most of all, this means staying physically and mentally active and engaged.

So, in this multi-faceted, omnibus blog, we bring the fruits of our research and experience to as wide an audience as possible. We want everyone coming to this site to benefit in some way from what we have learned.

We hope you find something helpful to you at Bartonby.com.

Thank you for visiting.
