This website is dedicated to all of us who are convinced that middle age is neither the beginning nor the end of life, but exactly what it is, the middle of life. We understand that a midlife crisis is really a midlife opportunity. But for most of us, middle age is poorly defined, poorly understood, and feared. When we decide we're middle-aged, it's with resignation, not pleasure. That's not simply a misunderstanding, it's wrong and potentially damaging to you now and in your future. There's one nice thing about middle age, you don't have to be like everyone else. You're old enough to know that and young enough to act on it.
I have created a new "retirement" essay here at this site, titled Avoiding the Retirement Bubble. As so many of my visitors planning for or just beginning retirement have been shocked or worse by the collapse of stock market and real estate "bubbles", I hope to help some of them deal with what I believe is another serious bubble in formation.
In addition, I am pleased to offer you an interview with Patricia Cohen, a journalist for the New York Times and author of In Our Prime: The Invention of Middle Age.
Whatever your concerns, you are welcome! I hope you find the site of good use.
