These are the thoughts and observations of me — a woman of a certain age. (Oh, my, God, I'm 60!) I'm single. I'm successful enough (independent, self supporting). I live in the burbs and work in the city (Chicago, the best city in the world). I'm an aunt, a friend and a colleague. I feel that voices like mine are rather underrepresented online or in print. So here I am. If my musings resonate with you, please visit my blog again sometime.

Just a couple weeks away
Thanksgiving is on Thursday, 11/22, so it's almost upon us! The economy is still tough, our neighbors are still struggling, and that big meal might be a strain on budgets already stretched too thin.
That's why I'm glad I took a small bag of canned goods -- including cranberry sauce! -- over to my local food pantry this morning. To find the pantry nearest you, click here.
