Pat Taub says “Women’s Older Wisdom (WOW) was born out of frustration locating online resources to help manage life as an older woman. Time and again when I googled “older women,” I discovered barely a reference to women in their 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. It was as if they didn’t exist.
When older women do blog it’s typically on the theme of “age is only a number, or you’re only as old as you feel.” I don’t find this philosophy either realistic or helpful. I know I’m getting old because my body is slowing down, my face is accumulating wrinkles, and my memory isn’t as sharp, while dear friends and relatives are dying on me.”
I’m with her!
