ANOTHER FIVE STAR REVIEW. THANK YOU! AND UPDATE below:

on October 17, 2017
It is clear that Jacqueline Becker has no intention of “going quietly into the night”as she rages against aging. She can kick and scream, stretch and kvetch to her heart’s content, but in the meantime she is totally engaged with the business of living.Her endless curiosity, her love for her family and friends and thoughts about the challenges and rewards of both parenting and grand-parenting , make reading her book as serious reflection on growing older as well as an opportunity to laugh out loud about the absurdity of life in all its messy complexity.Jacqueline Becker can rage all she wants, but her vibrant spirit and lust for life guarantee that she will remain forever young at heart.
TO DATE :  30 books sold and 2 kindle sales.  I hope you all enjoy this book.

PLEASE TUNE IN TOMORROW OCTOBER 10 AT 11 a.m. SENIOR MOMENTS 88.1 FM WCWP. org

I was taped on Oct 3rd and talked about my life and how I came to write:  RAGING AGAINST AGING, kicking & screaming, laughing & crying, stretching & kvetching – available on Amazon and soon on Kindle.  The show will air tomorrow.  We laughed the entire hour and I hope you will, too.  RAGE, AGE with HUMOR!!!

 

I DID A ONE HOUR INTERVIEW ABOUT MY BOOK

on a Local Public Access Radio show:  Senior Moments  88.1 FM – WCWP.ORG hosted by Stu and Nina Held.  Produced by Maria Steiglitz.  The show will air in its entirety next Tues. Oct. 10th at 11 a.m. and later it will be archived on the website so NO EXCUSES!!!!  It can be accessed from all over the world!   The hosts played Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.  What a coincidence, as a voice rises up on page one of my book, and lets me know that I am in the “autumn of my life!”  I will try to post a clip from the interview on Facebook but I am not that technologically astute so no guarantees.

 

 

Blogging about Blogging and My Decluttering Plan

I am blogging because I think I am thinking the thoughts that many of you must be thinking.  We are a sophisticated bunch – us baby boomers.  We are very much alive even though we are aging.  Our bodies remind us that we are no longer twenty but we sure feel like we are twenty.  Only we have life experience and with that, comes wisdom.  I am blogging hoping that I am helping you reflect on where you are on the cycle of life.  I am writing to declutter the clutter in my mind – the past, the present, and the future all jump around inside my brain.

What I never expected was that I would end up on a local tv station talking about my blogs about the clutter.  Until now I did not even realize that the literal clutter that I was blogging about may actually be more about the clutter in my mind.  And maybe the literal clutter is so confusing because it represents a past that may not coincide with the present and probably not with the future.decluttering-1

What I decided is:   I will  try to declutter first by selling my excess stuff but I will hold onto the stuff that may help me remember my life should my memory not serve me well.  Whatever money I make from the sales, I will put into a slush fund and we will hopefully take an extra vacation here and there on it.

Whatever I don’t sell, I may put in a pile and invite my friends to bring some of their stuff and then we can order in and have a “stuff” swap.  I will keep you posted.  If it is a success, I will host an annual swap.  If you are not my friend but like that idea, friend me on Facebook and ask me to invite you!

The rest of the stuff?  I will donate if and when I move into NYC or get too old to stay put!
