Another great review. Thank you Stacie!5.0 out of 5 starsI loved reading about the authors life ByStacieon January 24, 2018 Format: Paperback I loved reading about the authors life. Especially about her Jewish upbringing, career choices, how she met her husband and her relationship with her daughter and grandchildren. The chapter about her collection of shoes over the years and how those choices relate to what was or is going on in her life is something I can relate to. I enjoyed the book very much.

I TURNED MY BLOG INTO A BOOK

I started writing http://www.randomthoughtsfromthe60s.wordpress.com as a way to cope with aging.  I had retired and could not wrap my head around the fact that I was old enough to be retired.  I still had energy, albeit, less than I once had.  I still had interests.  I still wanted and needed to feel relevant.

I took each blog and organized by subject matter.  I took the subjects and organized them in a logical way, first, second, third, etc.

I then expanded on each subject and wrote chapters.

I wove the chapters into cohesive, interconnected personal essays that turned into a 140-page book.  RAGING AGAINST AGING is a few days away from being published.

The entire process of writing this book took three years BUT… There is a story about a famous painter, I forget which one it was.  It might have been Picasso because he had chutzpah.  Anyway, a potential client, buyer asked him how much time it took him to paint a specific painting, hoping to chisel down the price.  But the painter thought and slowly answered:  “My whole life.”

My whole adult life is virtually poured into these 140 pages.  I hope you kick and scream with me. I hope you laugh and cry with me.  I hope you stretch and kvetch with me!
