Meet Jan M. Flynn. She’s been a circus performer, a mayor, an actor and a writer of fiction. She’s also brought her bright light to Crow’s Feet, where she reveals her passions about the world.
Starting today, you can listen to Jan talk with fellow writer Warren Turner about how her life experiences shape her writing. It’s all in the third episode of the new Crow’s Feet podcast. You can download the episode right here, or listen to it on Spotify, iMusic, or wherever you get your podcasts. If you like what you hear, please subscribe to the podcast and leave us a review.
And, speaking of podcasts, writer Lee J. Bentch asks the question, podcast vs blog, which do you prefer? Check it out and let us know what you think.
We’ve also got a new writing prompt presented by the fabulous Robin James. Robin asks about your experiences with menopause — and andropause, a drop in hormones that impacts men.
“We Are All Just Walking Each Other Home”
These words from guru philosopher Ram Dass speak to the inevitability of the end of life and the acceptance that can make that transition peaceful.
This week, Crow’s Feet is featuring a handful of stories about helping our parents or a partner transition from an independent lifestyle to needing assistance in the last decade of life. It’s not an easy transition, but if you’re prepared, it can be a final act of love.
We’re also talking a lot about the transition to retirement, and several writers offer their suggestions about how to move successfully into this new phase of life.
