Welcome to Middle Age

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 begun a series of very informal short "conversational" videos at YouTube and the one below is the first. If you want to be notifed of future videos, just subscribe at my YouTube channel where I have videos on a wide range of topics.
