About Lusty not Musty

Lusty not Musty is dedicated to encouraging real women “of a certain age” to continue to pursue activities that bring them pleasure in all areas of their lives; socially, romantically, physically, aesthetically, etc…  through-out their lives no matter their circumstances.

I have been a reader of a certain magazine dedicated to women over 40 since it hit the newsstands.  I was only in my thirties at the time and used its glossy images and well- crafted articles of unusually successful, beautiful, healthy women as a target for whom and what I should be when I reached that age.  Of course, I spent the first few years of my forties feeling quite inadequate when measured against those women.  I am not CEO of a Fortune 500, I can no longer wear a size 6 (8, or 10 even) I cannot afford to furnish my summer home in the Hamptons with antiques I’ve collected from my worldly travels, and I do not socialize with the “A” list.

I am, however, healthy and happy.  I live in a comfortable home in which all of my friends and family are welcome.   I enjoy, cooking, reading, writing, entertaining, traveling, and so many others.  All of which I indulge in frugally.  There are a million stars in the sky over the southern Arizona desert whether you stare up at them from a Candlewood Suites or the Tubac Golf Resort and my Thanksgiving Day table, laid out with collected and hand crafted items, along with my thrift store finds, looks just a beautiful as any other.

I invite you to subscribe to LustynotMusty, and join me on my venture to remain vigorous and engaged and not to grow stale and apathetic.
