"You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you."Isadora Duncan
The writing on this site is directed towards women who are aged 50 and over who have a very strong desire and drive to live with joy, and be ageless in mind, spirit and body.
We share a desire to learn, grow, challenge our mind, spirit and body, and continue to do what we love to do for the rest of our lives.
And have fun.
We are also at that age (or thinking about) big life changes that are looming or are already here, in work, family, and health; we are at a point of taking stock of what is, and isn’t, working in our lives.
We want to offer our best, knowing sometimes we will fall short of the mark, even if it is in our own eyes only.
We are the baby boomers – children of the sixties – and we’ve seen a lot. We remember what rock and roll was like before the corporations ruined it. Our coming of age was about flower power, free love (and birth control); our mythology is Woodstock and missions to the moon.
We have also seen more than enough of corruption, greed, ugliness, destruction and violence. We worry about those that have too much and those that have too little. We worry for the future of our children. We worry about the safety of our food, the welfare of animals and the health of the planet. We live with a cynicism and distrust but we are also trying to keep our hearts open, trying to find grace and beauty around us. It is there!
Sometimes we take inspiration in the amazing creative energy of some of those who are coming of age today; other times we find it in remembering the fearless people of our own youth.
We are finding our voices.
We are reclaiming our wildness.
