The Author: I’m Ann Coleman, a woman in my mid-fifties who is a recent empty-nester. I love reading, writing, caring for shelter dogs and working on my house (and occasionally my son’s and daughter’s houses.) I share my home with my husband and a neurotic dog named Lucy. I’m not quite sure how middle age snuck up on me, but I’m doing my best to cope, and to find ways to live positively and creatively at this stage of my life.
The Blog: This blog is about exploring the ways that my life is different now that I have reached the middle years, both the good and the not-so-good. It’s written mostly for my friends and family, and for their friends and family if they wish to share, as well as anyone who is dealing with middle age. Helpful comments and suggestions about middle age are always welcome!
