Now in my 75th year, I’m "reFired"!
Certainly NOT vintage retirement. This chapter includes focused fun with my husband, Charlie; family and friends; fitness; writing and art; plus being an ambassador for selected nonprofits.
I'm still penning pieces centered on widows and money, while also doing legacy writing--stories, poems, and letters. What impact do you want to have when you're gone? Also speaking at selected conferences and college events.
Since my book was published (about 80,000 copies in circulation), I've moved forward in many ways. So can you if you've experienced widowhood. Thanks to professionals and friends assisting my "widowed sisters." I hope you find tools and articles on this site helpful.
Yes, I enjoy ice cream with sprinkles, especially on a warm summer eve!
