“Aging has a wonderful beauty and we should have respect for that.” Eartha Kitt
It was a great pleasure to join the AAFCA family and chat with Nina Lorez Collins, writer, author of the popular novel What Would Virginia Woolf Do?: And Other Questions I Ask Myself as I Attempt to Age Without Apology, podcaster of the show Raging Gracefully, life coach and creator of the website The Woolfer – a community-driven site of women, age 40 plus, where the art of aging is discussed, social parties are had, and support for navigating mid-life and beyond is shared.
Ms. Collins was gracious enough to join the roundtable and discuss everything from her familial and personal relationships, to her motivations in creating a safe space that older women could occupy in the digital world.
During the chat, I mentioned that her early life, specifically her relationship with her late mother – poet, playwright, writer, filmmaker, director, civil rights activist, and educator Kathleen Collins – was reminiscent of the 2020 film The Photograph – and you will definitely want to take a listen to her response to that observation.
