I have written and illustrated a journal entitled, “Be Brave. Lose the Beige“. The journal incorporates many of my blog posts from this site, and is designed to encourage Lady Boomers to discover their own colorful spirits and define what ideally living means to them. Through the use of whimsical and sometimes tongue-in-cheek – art images, readers are guided through an exploration of their interior selves, their goals and priorities. I’m hoping this will be a safe place for empty nesters to re-discover themselves as they rebuild their nests and make room for their own dreams, which may have been postponed for the past 25 years.
Evocative questions ask Lady Boomers, “As we age into our 50s, 60s and 70s, how can we creatively spend these years?”
Be Brave, Lose the beige is not just about color (although I’m crazy about colors…all colors, the more the better) it’s really a life choice. BBLB gently pokes fun at societal rules and norms. It says yes when the world around us says no. Is running from meeting to meeting, checking off the to-do lists really what it’s all about. I don’t think so. Discovering the playful side of life. Spreading joy. Being colorful … clever … creative. Now, that’s living.
