Welcome to Fire Over Fifty!

The purpose of this site is to inspire, entertain, and inform in a few areas of focus which have shoved their way to the center of my attention as I’ve evolved further into mid-life.
I suspect I’m not alone, so why not share? (I leave the definition of “mid-life” to the reader!) These are my stories and thoughts: of frustration, perseverance, and perspective, gained through the love and humor of the everyday.

Some of these focus areas are happening by design (sort of!); one, parent-care, is happening no matter what. Use the menu above to look around and explore the different content areas (which I won’t name here because who knows? They may change over time).

If you’re new and curious about the “Genesis Story” of this site and what compelled me to do this, have a peek at my first two posts, here and here.

I’d love to hear from you, so feel free to share your thoughts, reactions, and quite possibly your similar (or not-so-similar) experiences in the comments. I read them all, and try to respond in a timely manner. Please be kind – especially to each other. I’ll manage comments accordingly. Above all, I hope you enjoy my posts, and find this to be a place with stories you can relate to!
