Why I love Anna Quindlen
Anna Quindlen’s essays always make me think. Her latest collection is a joyful celebration of life as a mature woman. It’s reflective, thoughtful…and reminds me why I wouldn’t trade being in my fifties for the chance to be younger.


Scars will fade
One of the benefits of growing older is the sense of perspective it brings. When trouble comes, the idea that something is “the end of the world,” has been replaced by “This, too, shall pass.”
