Here, Here!

I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming that comes when you finish the life of the emotions and of personal relations; and suddenly find—at the age of fifty, say—that a whole new life has opened before you, filled with things you can think about, study, or read about.

Agatha Christie (1890-1976)

I am particularly moved by today's "quote of the day" from one of my gadgets in the side bar.


  1. That would be when she met and married the lovely, and younger, Max Mallowan and discovered a love of digging in the desert and life in the Middle East.
    She was a woman who knew how to have an interestng time!


  2. Hi Middle Way,

    50 seems to be a magical age for a woman. I read Kathleen Turner's autobiography Send Yourself Roses recently, and she said exactly the same. She loved her life at 50 much more than at any time before. So I'm looking forward to 50!

  3. Hi Lizzie and Daphne!

    I am going to hunt down some books about Agatha and Kathleen for inspiration. I don't know much about either.

    Thank you both!
