For almost eleven years, I have blogged twice a week at “70-something.com” and (now) “80-something.com”. My goal was to process the decade of my seventies and to be authentic in documenting the challenges and joys of my life. In a way, it was a shared journal. Much to my delight, many of you responded, telling me that my blog posts resonated with you, and my audience grew.
As the decade ended, I published the book 70-Something: Love, Life and Limits in the Bonus Years, a compilation by subject of my (and your) favorites. www.bit.ly/70-something
Of late, I have been thinking that I want to write only on occasion. During the past year, I have faced some challenges that took more out of me than I admitted, even to myself. Now, Peter and I are facing some medical issues (not surprising in our decade) that will require more attention.
But I am not closing down my site, so you haven’t heard the last from me.
My heartfelt thanks to all of you. I wish you all the best, and I encourage you to document your life, wherever you are in it.
