Hair changes. The color turns gray, the texture can become coarse, the shine dulls, strands thin and density decreases. For many of us past age 60, the crown we’ve worn all our lives no longer boasts the glory that used to make us proud…
We typically expect autumn to be the season when we pack away our linens and break out more of our traditional comfortable woolies in familiar neutrals, with the occasional bright pink or spring green cashmere thrown in just for fun. We wear them with wool pants, dark pencil skirts or plaids.
The time is approaching to break out the woollies! For those of us in the northern hemisphere, the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler. That means we get to cozy up around the fireplace…

If life was fair, losing weight after menopause would be just as easy as at any other stage in our lives. Unfortunately, life isn’t fair. When I was in my 20s, I could look at a pair of walking shoes and drop 5 pounds. Now, in my 60s, it feels like I could run a marathon and gain weight from the water that they served along the way.
This year is quickly coming to a close. As a holistic nutritionist I’m often asked: “What is the secret to lasting weight loss?” That’s a heavy question, no pun intended. Here are 10 things I’ve learned in the 20+ years I’ve been helping older women who want to lose weight:
On a beautiful fall morning in late October 2002, I was planting Iris bulbs along the waterfront of our home in the Northern Neck of VA. I felt a bit more tired than I thought was reasonable and noted that I was sweating more than normal, so I sat down and lit up a cigarette.
“I love coffee, I love tea. I love the boys, and the boys love me.”
I chanted that silly jump-rope jingle hundreds of times on the Oak Knoll Playground, certain that I’d never acquire a taste for either coffee or tea. Little did I know.

They say you never know what it’s like to stand in another person’s shoes. This is such a profound and true statement when it comes to the relationship between married and single friends in their 50s, 60s and beyond…
I recently had another of those relationship discussions with a few single friends. What they have in common is, they all have plunged into online dating. And everyone agrees that online dating is more painful…
Dating for older women can be as exciting as we want it to be! But what happens when you meet a man a little younger? Should you pursue it? Is the relationship doomed to fail from the beginning? Is the age difference an issue that cannot be overcome?
People everywhere are fascinated by sex. I am not the first to say so. We wonder what other people do and when and what it means to them. And some wonder how long it continues…

We all have dreams and bucket lists that we would like to accomplish in our lifetime. Seeing that most of us are past 60, we have likely completed many of them…

We came home from a weekend away to find a puddle of water in front of the fridge. Opening the door, I unscrewed my coconut milk and it smelled a bit off. The food in the freezer was cold, but completely unthawed…
Working from home can be a mixed blessing for those of us old enough to have finally finished with putting on those high heels every day and going in to the office (or shop, or wherever) to work…
When I was younger and had children arriving about every two years, I left my career. Because I’m a lawyer, I referred to it as laying down the law. I even wrote a book about it called Coming Home to Raise Your Children…

I always thought the old saying about entering your second childhood was a load of nonsense. Now it has taken on a totally different meaning to me.
Low costs… great weather… excellent healthcare for a steal. There are lots of benefits to giving overseas living a try. But what if you haven’t decided yet which overseas retirement haven you prefer? Or you don’t even know yet if this go-abroad strategy is for you?
As my regular readers know, last year I went through a major downsizing of my large home and moved into a very small apartment. It was hard. At times, very hard. I even wrote a book…

If you don’t remember the details of a trip that you took 10 or 20 years ago, did it ever happen? This was the question that found myself asking when I talked with my son recently about the trips that we took as a family.
We slipped quietly into our hometown, arriving one by one – by car, taxi, bus, or train. We all wondered what we would feel. It all looks the same! It all looks different!
