Black History and Women of a Certain Age.

I was wondering what I would write concerning Black History Month for “women of a certain age”.  Well I found a beautiful essay written by the beautiful Ms. Abbey Lincoln over 40 years ago.  It makes a very powerful statement.  Where are we today?


Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.

It starts with “YOU”!

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.
