Midlife Clarity

Instead of casting midlife as a crisis as society tends to, the contributors of Midlife Clarity would like to focus on the clarity that inevitably comes with this important rite of passage. Midlife Clarity brings together the wisdom of women over age forty in a celebration of how women lead their lives. It is a compendium of women's sagacity, with their spiritual and philosophical wisdom, but also an answer to what they really think about some of the more ridiculous aspects of life today. What was worth it and what wasn't? If they saw a friend heading down a path they'd already been on, what would they tell her? Each entry contains some life-lesson that a woman would share with a woman she loved: a daughter, a friend, or a sister. It will make the reader laugh, cry, or maybe just nod her head and whisper 'Yes'. The diverse entries include essays, humour, personal stories, opinion pieces, commentary, and short poetry.
