This is where we come together and talk about who we are. This is where our voices get loud and we discover we are not alone.

You will find stories about adventures, work, relationships, loss, relocating, health, style and celebrations. Add your name to our monthly newsletter below to be sure you don’t miss a thing.

This is place for us to talk about changing societal perceptions about getting older and let the world know we are here. And we will be heard.
