About Catherine

Far from perfect, but enjoying life as a non-perfect and flawed individual at 60 years young. I'm still wondering what I'll be when I grow up! The characters in my life's screenplay include my better half. He is a refined Frenchman who grew up in Paris and summered in St. Tropez. I grew up in Long Island and summered in Long Island. I am not refined. My three grown children are also a big part of my life. For their sake, they happily live where their careers have taken them! But I can still mother them from a distance! I write about the mundane. I write about deeply shallow issues. But whatever I write or muse about--it'll always be a bit on the humorous and positive side! It's all good!

The Fuckeduptedness of Being “Old”

There!  I said it and in doing so made up a new word. “Fuckeduptedness”.  There’s no need to explain the word either. It’s a time of reflection for me because in less than three months I’ll reach my 65th birthday.  … Continue reading
