I Feel Great about My Hands

February 2012

"Readers will probably cry as much as they laugh because this is no lightweight, 'meno-positive' collection. Older women take the lioness' share of the challenges and heartaches of empty nests, caring for aging and dying parents, living below poverty level, and becoming invisible. These writers do not shirk from sharing these realities."

"Graydon put together remarkable, inspiring stories that are so honest that you can't help but want to be as smart as these women...I'd like to thank the women in this book for helping me stare down my fear and realize that aging isn't what will shorten my life. Not working hard for what I believe in might, though; not being willing to take on risks and try new things absolutely will; not living well or loving well are guaranteed life-shorteners. But aging? Not so much."
