I used to lead a workshop to enable women to discover and to declare their visions for their lives. It was created for women over age 50. It’s not easy for anyone, much less for older people and even less for women, to get past the layers we have created to protect us and to […]

New Proverbs for the New Year

December 26, 2017


Life in the Boomer Lane isn’t a fan of New Year’s Resolutions. It’s too easy to imagine losing 20 lbs as one stuffs oneself at the endless Thanksgiving-to-New Year’s Eatathon. Or to imagine going to the gym every day as one spends the entire month moving from table to couch to bed.  Instead, LBL prefers […]

A Boomer New Year

December 25, 2011


It’s that time of year again, when thoughts of health and fitness may intrude ever-so-slightly as we shove yet another holiday treat into our gaping maws.  When a belief in the kindness and goodness of mankind is ever-so-gently shoved aside as we spew epithets at those who secure undeserved spaces before we do in the […]

My 2011 Letter of Commitment

December 29, 2010


About 15 years ago, I attended a workshop that allowed me to see what was working in my life and what wasn’t.  Part of the program was that we got to create Letters of Commitment, contracts between us and ourselves, based on several areas of life.  These LOCs weren’t resolutions.  They were blueprints of how […]
