Life's Learning Curve

episodes and news

Join Paul and Sharly as they recount their unexpected encounter with Brandon, a man whose presence altered the course of their holiday in Key West. Set against the backdrop of swaying palms and vibrant streets, their journey begins innocently enough with a quest for relaxation and adventure. But as they traverse the sun-soaked alleyways, they stumble upon Brandon, a middle-aged man navigating the streets in an ill-equipped wheelchair, his life forever changed by a recent stroke.

Against the vibrant backdrop of Key West's cultural tapestry, Paul and Sharly are drawn  into Brandon's world, filled with trials, resilience, and unexpected twists. As they extend a helping hand, they uncover the complexities of Brandon's reality –from his struggles with homelessness to his battles with anxiety and mortality. Yet amidst the challenges, there are moments of connection and hope, as Brandon find solace in the warmth of human kindness and companionship. But as days pass, they realize that Brandon's pride may be the biggest obstacle to accepting the help offered by others.

Through heartfelt conversations and shared moments, Paul and Sharly grapple with the complexities of Brandon's story, ultimately learning that sometimes the greatest acts of kindness come from simply being present and offering support without judgment. In this poignant episode, listeners are invited to reflect on the resilience of the human spirit, the power of connection, and the profound impact of empathy and understanding. So join Paul and Sharly as they navigate the streets of Key West and discover the true meaning of compassion in the most unexpected places.

We retell ife's stories that helped us become who we are now. The stories can be quite funny, ironic, as well as painful. The human spirit fights to succeed, while at the same time, we try our best to keep adding day to day value to our lives. When we take that story-step backward, we often rediscover the humor, love and sometimes we even find needed closure we once overlooked. There is more to life than the day to day. Life passes by quickly & sometimes it’s hard to let the past go. So, with humor and optimism we present this podcast.
