Second Lives Club
Second Lives Club is a blog and community site for women 50 years and older whose goal is "to make the best of the rest". The site reflects both the changing priorities of this under-served demographic group as well as the rapidly-changing world it lives in. In individual and occasional joint posts, Caryl and Maryl act as both tour guides and sidekicks on this unforged path. The two co-founders rely on a limited number of categories and employ truth, humor, real life experiences and solid journalistic skills to engage and validate an audience that often finds itself invisible and stigmatized by aging.
We’re desperate to know if there are steps we can take to stay mentally alert and sharp later in life. There are some theories like “cognitive reserve” that can be measured to a degree. Maryl notes that’s what seems to have worked for the artist Willem de Kooning who was productive even into his last decade.
