Reflections

“When I reflect on my life at 70, I begin with a holistic snapshot—that includes family, friends, and recreation. I end by thinking more and more about the role of work in my life, and the role of work in the lives of other women my age. We are mothers and grandmothers and wives and partners but perhaps above all we—I don’t think I’m the only one—identify ourselves by our work. Who will I be when I no longer have a title? Who will I be without a paycheck? On what stage will I express my creativity and desire to contribute?”
