Decades of Grace

Age Related

By Rose Ann Sinay

My sister and I tried to slip by the kitchen door unnoticed while our aunts and our mother sat at the kitchen table talking about the extra flab around their middles, pain in their knees and back, diarrhea, constipation and every other thing that a teenager would find totally gross. My sister and I giggled […]

Reflections on Forty

By Melissa Face

For the past couple of years, I have noticed significant changes in what brings me joy. A great sale, for example, is pretty darn exciting.

It’s hard to talk about mortality. No one wants to plan for the unthinkable, but it is so important to talk about advanced directives. Tell your loved ones now what you want in the event you become gravely ill. I have told my mother exactly what I want – and even though she doesn’t want […]
