Hello! How are you doing?
What new ideas or experiences are you excited about?
What new questions are swirling around in your beautiful mind?
Read any inspiring books lately?
Well, I’d love to hear all about everything!
If you live in or near the Portland, Oregon metro area, why not hang-out with me at the upcoming Gero-Punk Salon on Sunday, June 9th, 1-3 p.m. PST. at the Multnomah County Library Sellwood-Moreland Branch.
And just so’s you know, it is quite unlikely that I’ll have finished reading Women Rowing North: Navigating Life’s Currents and Flourishing as We Age, by Mary Pipher, in time for the salon. (In fact, I may not finish it at all, ever. It turns out it isn’t really my cup ‘o tea.)
If you have finished reading this book, I’ll look forward to hearing your thoughts about what inspired you and what left you yearning for more (or different) insights and information about women’s mid- and later-life experiences. And if you haven’t finished nor even started this book, no worries! Come one, come all!
I was thinking it might be fun to spend a portion of the salon engaging in a show-and-tell. Feel free to bring your list of must-reads (and must-sees?) about gender and aging, as well as any other topics related to our complex travels through the life-course. (And not only as pertains to cisgender women, but for all human beings in our exquisite, wild variety!)
I might also bust out a collaborative creative activity to shake things up a bit. Play and collaboration and spontaneity and complexity and creativity and rebellion are at the heart of the Gero-Punk Project. Have I piqued your interest?
I hope to see you there!
