Am I the only one born between the years 1946 and 1964, affectionately referred to as Baby Boomers, who is experiencing a difficult time accepting the fact that we are easing our way into old age? We were oblivious, in our 20’s and 30’s, to the fact that time would flash by in a blink and we would find ourselves in our 60’s. What happened to our 40’s and 50’s? Yikes, our 70’s are looming and what have we done with our lives? A lot of us have grandchildren…as well as parents living into their 80’s and 90’s. Are you pulled in three directions…children, grandkids and aging parents? This blog hopes to address some of the many issues of aging, parenting, becoming the parent to your parents…along with some political stuff, travel stuff…and a lot of other “stuff”. I hope it can help readers, as well as this writer! You can also find me at hypeorlando.com, the Orlando Sentinel blog platform which publishes Forever Young but Growing Old. And, big news, now I’m also a contributor with TravelPulse, a wonderfully newsy site for travel professionals. Enjoy! Susan Young

  1. Hi–I learned about you and your blog from the NSNC newsletter. (I’ve been a member abt 18 years). I am Baby Boomer. And, I have a bookm (OK, so who doesn’t.) This one is BEFORE THE FIRST SNOW (see amazon.com or http://www.greeleyandstone.com) for details. It focuses upon 1964-1991, and upon a “hippie” woman who was a part of the counterculture and of a reporter who covered her story. (It’s a “journalistic novel.”) The book has a lot of humor, but also political and social issues. Perhaps you might like to write about it for your blog, perhaps review it, perhaps buy several dozen copies??

    Thank you


  2. I was born in 1957, so I guess I qualify as a “baby boomer”, lol. I just joined the NSNC and was thrilled to find your blog through their site. I think the theme of your blog is a great idea, as I find myself right in there as a grandpa of three grandkids. I look forward to reading your posts!
