After the Emmys, a New Kind of Thrill
Last April, at the age of 66 years, 8 months, and a few days, I decided to leave my 40-year career as a television producer--for the last 25 years at WGBH as executive producer of national PBS children's series. This move had been floating in my consciousness and in conversation with close friends for some time, so it didn't come out of thin air.

It begins when the leaves start abandoning the trees and the chill of autumn is in the air.

A Glass Half Full
Two years have passed since my husband’s death. The anticipation of Thanksgiving, Sam’s favorite holiday, is bittersweet. Now, perhaps more than in the past, my thoughts gravitate toward the deeper meaning of this holiday. Gratitude and grief coexist. There are the overarching gifts for which I am grateful: being born in this country; a happy childhood with loving parents; never wanting for food or shelter; many years of good health; and 13 wonderful years with my soul mate. As I delve more deeply into these blessings, I think about the Eastern European relatives who lost their lives during World War II. I reflect on my parents’ sacrifices to build a happy, loving and secure life for their children. And, I cherish the years Sam and I shared knowing that, if I never love again, I will still feel like one of the very lucky ones. Read more...

Why TTN for Me
Sam and I were together for 13 years, married for the last three. We met in our 50s through a personal ad (the pre-Internet dating era) and were inseparable after our first date. Neither of us was naive to life’s challenges, having survived difficult marriages, divorces, “interesting” family dynamics, and major career changes. Into our midlife relationship, we brought established friendships, numerous avocations, and long-standing habits—some good, others somewhat irritating. We were best friends, lovers, confidants, advocates for each other, and devil’s-advocates when necessary. We thought we would grow old together in bliss. Read more...

It was 2007, at the first Positive Aging Conference, when I first heard about The Transition Network.
