The Author: I’m Ann Coleman, a woman in my late fifties who is an empty-nester. I love reading, writing, working with shelter dogs, working on my house and yard, and helping my extended family. These days I share my home with my husband and a neurotic dog named Lucy. I’m not quite sure how middle age sneaked 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 am no longer young, both the good and the not-so-good. I had originally intended to write only about middle age (and beyond), but I soon began branching out into writing about nearly all aspects of my life. Still, the basic purpose of this blog has remained the same. I want it to be positive, even when dealing with difficult subjects, and I hope to give something of value to my readers in each post. Comments are always welcome!
