WOOF: Media Monday -- Wise WOOFers Speak Out!

If you've read WOOF: Women Only Over Fifty (and if you haven't, what are you waiting for?!), you understand we're a sisterhood of women determined to be all we can be now and forever more! Apparently these women feel much the same...

"I am more myself than I have ever been."
May Sarton, poet, novelist, 75

"It’s taken 63 years, but now I know who I am."

Madeline Albright, former Secretary of State, 63

"I like growing old. I say it to myself with surprise."

Barbara Macdonald, author, activist, 65

"After all, I’m 81 — I’m experiencing an increased indifference
to people’s opinions — I’m not so scared anymore."

Olga Bloom, musical director of Bargemusic, NYC, 81

"It’s a terrible thing in women’s culture that you’re supposed
to be dead after menopause in our culture. You’re not
beautiful any more, nothing. Since I was 60, I’ve written
more and had better energy than I ever had in my life."

Meridel Le Sueur, poet, social activist, 86

"This is the best time of my life."

Raquel Welch, film actress, 60

I was thrilled to read this list! It shows me that there's hope ahead, even though things in my life are pretty down right now.

I feel better, and I'll definitely be back! I'm almost 60, really, and this is VERY good news. :)

Paula, yes, there is HOPE! Lots and lots of hope...Please stop by anytime, and let us know that things are getting better for you...
