SELF- INVENTION – The Bond Among Women of All Generations

By Suzanne Braun Levine

One thing about being an older mother is that you are constantly reminded of the truism that age doesn’t really describe the shape of a person’s life. Nor does our place on the family tree, the generation we are assigned to at birth. When my daughter was born I was 44, old enough to be her grandmother. When she went to school, I was old enough to be her teachers’ (and her friends parents’) mother. At the same time my contemporaries had long since forgotten about coping with babies and young children – they were on to the joys of grandchildren. My most meaningful cohort was other women with children my children’s age, but not my age themselves.

Mother’s Day Is For Daughters Too.

By Suzanne Braun Levine

I have always thought of Mother’s Day as a celebration of my mother, the Main Mom in the family. I made plans designed to please her and honor her on her Day. Eight months ago she died, and so this year, for the first time, I am the last mom standing. It is a weird feeling to have the day to myself, especially when my inclination is to spend it missing her. Yet when I think of the two of us as mothers, I see the…

NEW VIDEOS – “50” Is a Big Deal Birthday For Most Women and a Time Full of Promise!

YOUNGER WOMEN ARE LOOKING AHEAD!

A young staff member at Plume (my paperback publisher) interviewed me for two new videos to celebrate the paperback publication of “50 Is the New Fifty.” Because the interviewer was a young woman, I was reminded (again) of how important it is for women in second adulthood to be seen in our culture – to be visible and happy. We are each other’s horizontal role models. And, just as important, we are paving the way for younger women.
