Speaking out from the growing invisibility of growing older and female in this man’s world, I am inspired by the beauty and strength of my peers, by our collective wisdom, and by the bright future we can share with our youth.

This blog is not just for older women, not just for women, but for anyone interested in hearing perspectives that are too often silenced in our culture.

My blood is still flowing in my veins, despite the lack of monthly evidence.

the author: single mother, teacher, photographer, writer, academic: too many schools in too few years made me adventurous, adaptable, outspoken, and occasionally ornery. My purpose in life is to share love and beauty, in all their multiple forms. Injustice makes me just plain mad.
