Yes, We Can!

- ROBIN LANE I was born February 13, 1934 in the height of the depression and grew up during World War II. I came of age during the conservative Eisenhower years.

Happy, Vital, Active, Joyful… AGELESS

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.

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.

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?

An Exciting Groundswell Within the Beauty Industry

by DARA GOLDBERG Anyone who knows me was not surprised by how fired up I was after reading the November 2021 Vogue article about Sarah Jessica Parker’s age-shaming experience.

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.

As a result, they tend to focus [ Read More ]

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 ]

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 ]

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?
