YOU’RE ONLY AS OLD AS YOU’RE REAL

YOU’RE ONLY AS OLD AS YOU’RE REAL

I turn fifty-seven today….no…no…no… this is not a ploy to get endless birthday greetings. It’s just aging is on my mind. I had to talk about Medicare with the WGA the other day. That was a new type of conversation for me to have. “So, when I get to sixty-five, you guys only cover dental?” Sixty-five…Hold on, I’m adjusting to 57. People say they don’t think about aging and I’m not sure that is true. It’s hard not to. We… Read More

THE WAY TO BE SOMETHING IS TO SIMPLY BE IT

  One of the biggest things people grapple with is “How do I just be the person I want to be?”  How do I jump in and get the things I want to get. And oddly, like with most things the answer is simple – just do it or in this case just be it. Be the change you wish to see. ~Gandhi People yearn for more love.

ON SMALL, SEISMIC SHIFTS

ON SMALL, SEISMIC SHIFTS

As I wrote the title for today’s post, I thought back to the title of Grace Paley‘s story collection, Enormous Changes at the Last Minute.  One of the great titles ever.  Do enormous changes ever come upon us in any way, other than the last minute?  We apply ourselves each day.  We show up.  We practice our craft.  We love the people we love.  We try to be good friends.  To be kind.  Compassionate.  We soften into life, like velveteen rabbits.  And then… Read More
