Just this minute joined this timely (for me) group. I'm 73 and most of my life have defined my life by what was expected of me as a teenaged female in the 50s from a male dominated family, as a wife and mother of five. I "chose" teaching as a college major "in case I ever had to work," said my father. Then I chose employment as an alcoholism counselor (22 years) to get various family members into recovery. I performed well. Now I want to live from a different place, tapping into interests and skills I had as a young child. This group calls out to me as possible support, give and take with older others who may be rethinking what they want their lives to be, today. Just for today, I will make time to sit down at my precious grand piano and read some sheet music like I did a hundred years ago when I needed a mood lifter in the midst of my depressed and unexpressive family. I really don't know (yet) what kind of flower I am. Anyone identify with me?
