Full Disclosure

I am actually 49 but turning 50 next month. I have to admit it has been freaking me out. I was cool. I was a punk rocker in the 80's. I have always looked a good 10 years younger than my age. Until now. Suddenly I tell people my age and they believe me!!! It's horrible!

Early 1980's

Obviously I loved that outfit. ha ha.

Below is me at almost 40.

I am at the tail end of the Baby Boomers so I know I'm not the only one going through this. I am on a personal mission to make 50 my bitch. Ha ha. I would apologize for my language but, no. That is part of the privilege of getting older. I can stop worrying so much about what everyone thinks. I have earned that. (whew. That felt good, actually)

Here I am now. This is a professional headshot so keep that in mind. It's not retouched though. I had to stick my neck way out so I didn't have a double chin. It hurt kind of.

By the way, that is my real haircolor. I stopped dying it and let the premature gray (white) grow out. Letting the gray hang out is a noticeable trend that I'll talk about later. 

I'd love to hear your thoughts and concerns regarding this time of life regardless of your age or sex. I personally refuse to become a little old lady. I'm on a mission to stay hot and I'm not talking about menopause.


  1. This is the third time I'm writing this comment for some strange reason i mess with the buttons and keeps getting lost!I read this article today about a woman you let hergrey hair grow out and how that helped her with the maturing process. check it out if you want.I love your american punk rock style of the 80s.Her in Greece it was more London calling style.I'm a 43 so for me new wave alternative house grunge were most my style.
    So welcome to the blogosphere and keep posting! I'll put you in my list.
