The Light We Can’t See

By: CATHERINE HARRISON "Take a good look at the faces of your three sons because you will not be able to see them as grown men".  This was the cruelest way I can think of to tell someone they are going blind...yet that is exactly what happened to me.  I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP), a blinding, genetic retinal disease in 1995 and told [ Read More ]

The 5 Activators To Reinvent Your Life – Step Three

by PIRIE JONES GROSSMAN WHAT’S YOUR VISION? An authentic self leads to your purpose and, ultimately, your vision. When I ask people, “what’s your vision?” most answer about achieving something outside themselves. But, another way of asking that question is, “what’s your purpose?” When people think about their vision, it usually intertwines with the concept of their lives. As a result, they tend to focus [ Read More ]

Author Alka Joshi of The Henna Artist and The Secret Keeper of Jaipur

I am in love with Alka Joshi’s writing. Anyone who can take me out of where I am and transport me to another time and place, is easy to love. And this is exactly what Alka did, during Covid, at a time when traveling was impossible. She took my hand in hers and lead me to post-Raj, 1950’s Jaipur, also known as the Pink [ Read More ]

The Art of Connection

by: SUSIE LANG My work with WOMEN.60.PLUS, started back in 2017. Back then, it was in an effort to show older women how visible they really are. In turning 60, I felt I was invisible not only to the world, but as my work progressed, invisible to myself. I needed to change this. And I wanted to know if I really was alone in my [ Read More ]

Why Pro Aging Changed my Life and Can Change Yours Too

by: PIRIE JONES-GROSSMAN Have you ever wondered why an older woman with prominent laugh lines, a probable result of her joy for life, can look a decade younger than her best friend of the same age?

By Dr. Vonda Wright What was the best day of your life?” the moderator asked me as a room full of executives waited for my answer during one of those get-to-know- each-other moments at a recent retreat.

Ruth Yunker on Turning 70

What can I say about Ruth? I just love her spirit. She’s a shining light. She exudes warmth and compassion. She’s open and honest and shares more than you’d expect from a new friend, and I just love that.

Oh Come On

by SUSAN SILVER I like to say ‘I am between fifty and death!  ‘Some annoying woman told me that was “being ageist” and yelled at me when I was a GUEST on her radio show! Really?

The Beauty of Diversity

by SUSIE LANG On my recent trip back to my birth country, Australia, I was invited to my sister’s home for her bookclub gathering.

The importance of community for women as we age often gives new life, particularly as their [ Read More ]

Resilience

by: SUSAN SILVER One  of  my  heroes,  a  true genius, Stephen Sondheim, recently passed. I worshiped him. As a writer, I marveled at his ability to express what we all feel, deep down, fearful and courageous, looking for love but terrified of finding it.  And, as he wrote in Follies: “Good times, bum times, I've seen 'em all, I’ve run the gamut, A to Z, [ Read More ]

Change It Up

How often have we heard from within the Pro-Age community, how annoying it is to see ads for anti-aging products when it’s obvious the models are in their teens or early twenties? Do advertisers truly think we are gullible enough to believe that these young models are seeing results from these beauty products and that’s why they look like this? So what are advertisers [ Read More ]

A Career Paved in Diamonds

Carol Brodie “As we head into 2022, I keep asking myself what’s next? What is my true purpose? Why don’t I feel that I’ve even begun to achieve what I am destined to do?

In Praise of Older Women

Images Susie Lang Photo (above #1, 4, 5, 7, 9) One of the perks of dufferdom is an increased capacity to appreciate people. Friends. Spouses. And, for me, women. All women. When I was 20, I had eyes only for girls my age. Any woman over 30 was ancient, over 40 invisible. Today, at 71, I still appreciate the 20-year-old for her youthful [ Read More ]

Searching for Happiness in Spite of War

by NICOLE LACHANCE Is it alright for me to want to be happy right now? Am I still allowed to celebrate the little things? Is there happiness etiquette in times of war?  What is happening in the world right now is incomprehensible to me. The fact that Russia has invaded Ukraine in this most savage and barbaric way is something that I just can’t process. [ Read More ]

Aging – my Journey to Freedom, Love and Joy

by LORI KLEIMAN For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to older women. Not all… just the women who seem to embrace their age, exude confidence and sensuality, move as if they are at home in their bodies and souls, and live life boldly despite the physical and emotional realities of getting older. Now… at 60, I understand that what I [ Read More ]

Dare To Wear

Fashion vs. Style STYLE is a self-portrait, a reflection of who we are. It announces to the world THIS IS ME. It is a form of self-expression that comes from the inside out. It’s our unique individual voice. FASHION is about trends. It is the collective voice. The designers’ voice. It comes from the outside in. Here, at this moment, I want to speak [ Read More ]

Mirror Vs. Soul

Here lies the conflict that arises throughout our later years. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could see our soul as the reflection in the mirror, to see who we are authentically rather than superficially? What would that look like for us?
