As Boomers entering our golden years, it is common to wonder if our lives still matter. What is it that we still have to offer? We face the challenges of careers ending, finances fluctuating, abilities diminishing and increasing responsibilities of caring for our aged parents as well as our own health and longevity.
The lyrics, stories and paintings in this book are companion to a group of songs I recorded as the album “Mangle the Tango.” manglethetango.com These songs talk about taking the risk to dream and do. Taking baby steps towards our visions, and risking that we will “Mangle the Tango,” because “it’s better to fall than never to dance at all.” It’s not about perfection, it is about being faithful to step out, no matter what our age, and exercise whatever gifts we are able to tap into.
