I’ve never understood why feminism, for some women, cannot be gentle. As I’ve said, I define my version of feminism as having choices and, of course, I believe in a cause that supports that possibility for all women. Call me naive if you will, but I don’t see how lip gloss and mascara complicate or negate one’s principles.

Another of you, a beauty again, told me she “earned every one of my gray hairs.” You are funny, optimistic, open, courageous, intelligent — I could go on and on, and I will. Just keep sending in your pictures. I already have a nice backlog, but honestly I’m having so much fun with you I don’t want to stop.
Today, you’re all in your 50s.

And, please, the young women in their 30s who visit this space, please participate. We want to know what you think, where you’re going and where you are in your lives right-this-minute.

A tiny aside: Andrea, since you read your mother’s blog every day, will you please tell your girlfriends — who do the same — to send their pictures to your mother. Merci par avance, you know the address: firstname.lastname@example.org. (Love you.)
Please, those of you who may have hesitated, maybe you could rethink and send your photo. Every one I receive will be included. Age has no importance. Just keep repeating, like a mantra.
A demain, mes chers amis.
