I am one of six siblings in my family, and most of my family can cry at the drop of a hat. At a wedding? No problem. Baby birth? Easy peasy. Reading a birthday card? Of course. Watching a good movie? It’s like life itself, and the tears flow early on.




“The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.” (Frank Lloyd Wright) Non-fiction pieces, personal essays and occasional poems that explore how we feel about how we age and offer tips for getting the most out of life.
