The Author: I’m Ann Coleman, a woman in my late fifties who loves reading, writing, working with shelter dogs, working on my house and yard, and helping my extended family. My son and daughter are all grown up and married, so these days I share my home with my husband and a neurotic dog named Lucy. I’m still a little surprised to realize that I’m middle-aged (and then some), but I’m also learning that there is plenty of good in this stage of my life. Living a creatively and fully is not just for the young!
The Blog: This blog was originally intended to write about the issues of being middle-aged and coping with all that changes that this particular phase of life brings. But the focus soon evolved into recognizing and appreciating the positive aspects of aging: a stronger sense of self, learning to overcome old fears, ditching at least a few of my bad habits, and most of all, realizing that there is still so much good in the world if we are only willing to look for it.
