The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.“To a Mouse,” by Robert Burns
No truer words have ever been spoken, particularly when reflection on the year that was 2020. As countries like the United States, begin to adjust and realign life within its borders, people are cautiously beginning to move forward with plans for the future. How successful those plans will be depends on the manner in which it’s approached. Times like these tend to bring out the very best and worst of people.
You may write me down in history. With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt. But still, like dust, I’ll rise.Still I Rise, Maya Angelou
Some men and women falling for easy answers or a quick fix. While other men and women rose to face the changes headlong, in spite of fear. However, as it has for millennia, women have been on the frontlines, serving as nurses, teachers, cooks and more to keep the family grounded through uncertainty.
The Still A Chick-Lit seeks to continue to celebrate aspiring and published female authors over forty and fifty-plus. When we return, we’ll also be including conversations with women who are making their mark in business and their careers. We will be discussing motherhood and other-Hood as some moms are still in the trenches, while other moms try to adjust to their role in their adult children’s lives. Simply put, the podcast is about phenomenal women who aren’t letting age slow them down or define them.
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
That’s me.Phenomenal Woman, Maya Angelou
Here is a preview of what’s to come.
