Am I Too Old To Wear This?

It’s a cute little dress, an inch or two above the knee, flows great when you move, chic black and white stripes…you want it. You stand in line at the checkout counter, and then you start thinking: “Am I too old to wear this?” While women in their thirties and forties may ask the question, […]

Stepping Up

From time to time, when something doesn’t go my way, I find myself saying, “What am I — the ugly stepchild?” It’s a horrible, anachronistic phrase, and it is all the more surprising that I use it, because being a stepmother is one of the best things that ever happened to me. The term “like […]

  From Whitwell, TN to Broomall, PA: Moving a Legacy In 1998, a middle school principal in Whitwell, Tennessee started a Holocaust education program to teach children about tolerance. The children had difficulty comprehending the massive scale of the Holocaust, so they searched for something to represent the lives that were exterminated. When the children […]

I’m Not That Kind of Person

I got my car detailed for the first time last month. I’m not the kind of person who splurges on things like that, but when I spilled a strawberry smoothie throughout the passenger area, there was no choice. My car is now amazing, cleaner than when it was new! I’m not sure what kind of […]

Who would get a tattoo on their chest saying, “Do Not Resuscitate” or “No CPR”? Apparently, a lot of people, and it’s creating controversy in the medical world. Bio-Ethicist Tom Tomlinson argues that DNR tattoos have benefits. They don’t get lost; they go wherever you go. That’s unlike written advance directives, which are seldom in […]

Oh, To Be Young Again…Not

  Oh, to be young again…Really? Recently, a friend sent me letters I had written to her during our first year in college. In one letter, I wrote: “I went to a meeting last night that will change my life forever. I learned about institutional racism:  we are all racists.” The following week I wrote, […]

Be a Lamp, a Lifeboat, or a Ladder

“Are you still working?” I hear this question more and more, sometimes from people my age, sometimes from folks who are younger. It bothers me, because it feels as if there is more than curiosity behind the question; it feels like judgment. Society seems to have preconceived notions of what we should be doing at […]

Why Surgery is Better Than a Cold

  I’ve had a lot of surgery in my life, and I’ve had a lot of colds. No doubt about it. I’d rather have surgery than a cold. With surgery, you have a pretty good idea of what to expect. You’ll have some rough days initially, and then every day will be a little better […]

Honk Like a Girl

Someone cut in front of me, so I honked at him. It wasn’t much of a honk, more like a honklette. So I said to myself, “You honk like a girl.” “Like a girl”! Where did that come from? I thought about the video I had seen, “Always #LikeAGirl” and was ashamed of how sexist […]

How Did Fear of Flying Become Fear of Falling?

  We had a wintry mix last week, and as I put on my boots, I thought, “I don’t want to fall.” “You sound old,” I said to myself. And then I thought, “Why does not wanting to fall make me old? I think it makes me smart.” Risk-taking is highest in adolescents and tends […]
