Overview

An essayist, poet, freelance writer, and Minnesota Public Radio commentator, Susan Carol Hauser saw her approaching fiftieth birthday as an opportunity to reflect on where she had been, in order to better understand who she was at this milestone in her life. Each of her essays shares the wonder, experiences, and perceptions of life's cycles, of one year's turning - of a woman turning fifty. Barbara Van Arnam's magnificent paintings tap into the all-encompassing rhythms of life, eloquently echoing the essential harmony flowing through nature, and ourselves, as we continue on our path through life. Hauser's many peers in the baby-boomer generation will recognize their era on these pages, as they too conjure a new personal future.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The 50th birthday, in the view of Hauser, a Minneapolis-based writer (Girl to Woman) and Public Radio commentator, is "especially poignant because it is the first decade marker that offers no comfort when we doubt it." Her own arrival at that marker is charted in this collection of 13 reflective essays, one for each cycle of the moon, in which she journeys toward appreciation of age and aging, celebrating life's cycles and, she hopes, arriving at acceptance and understanding of self. These graceful meditationson her husband, Bill, who is 27 years her senior; on the death of a friend from breast cancer; on the comfort of having a "grown-up child"are dotted with wry humor and complemented by the delicate art of California-based Barbara Van Arnam.
