    A seasoned woman is spicy. She has been marinated in life experience. She can be alternately sweet, tart, bubbly, or mellow. She can be maternal and playful, bossy and submissive, strong and soft. The seasoned woman knows who she is. She could be any one of us, as long as she is committed to living fully and passionately in the second half of life.

A mother who was doubly bereft when she lost her only son as he tried to fill the shoes of her absentee husband; the sole survivor in an office of 67 people who escaped the 88th floor of Tower 2 seconds before the floor was decimated.
