Surprisingly Full Of Energy, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:17am


For superstitious reasons I hesitate to tell you, but, this past week I’ve had a burst of energy. I almost don’t know what to do! Except use a rare exclamation mark in a blog post. Does this happen to you? I used to buzz at a high frequency all the time. Until I’d collapse, spent, […]

Wondering What Sixty Is, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:10am Central Time


I’ve had the occasion these past few days to see old friends. As I’ve told them, I’m researching. They both had their 60th birthdays earlier this year, and I want to benchmark our age.

Going For It, Or, Saturday Morning at 8:10am Eastern Time


New York has been extraordinary. And I’m ready to go home. It was a quick trip but full and audacious. Sue of Une Femme d’un Certain Age and I managed to see the whole Tom Ford show from outside the back window of the Four Seasons. My best friend and I took a pedicab tour […]
