I am currently researching and writing on the lived experience of being in our 50, 60, and 70th decades. This is a time of transition and passage as significant as adolescence but with a different intent and biophysical underpinning.  It is a time rich with new understandings of oneself as body and self in the world outside and within. I invite you to check out my blog at:
I welcome any life stories that you would like to share with me about this time in your life.
