Flip-Flops After 50: And Other Thoughts on Aging I Remembered to Write Down by Cindy Eastman hits it perfectly in the center of the bull’s-eye. Cindy makes getting old a wonderful adventure that I found myself sharing with her. Each chapter touched a piece of my life too; and I was able to smile, laugh out loud and feel the joy, happiness and sadness of each event. Christmas shopping in New York City brought back wonderful memories of the Rockefeller Center ice skating rink, the excitement of becoming a grandma was described to a tee, thinking I looked great and then later seeing myself in a picture was so exact. I felt like I was at Cindy’s house for each of the holiday celebrations and surely she must have been a fly on the wall at my house. Each chapter tells a story and builds a satisfying life, making it okay to be reaching the Big 50 (surprise party included), becoming an empty nester, and missing the kids, and life going on and on.
I really loved reading Flip-Flops After 50. It brought me back to good and bad, happy and sad times in my life with perfect reason. Cindy Eastman has artfully made turning 50 and beyond a good thing and one I realized I was glad to have had the good fortune to be a part of. This is a must-read for every woman soon to be turning 50 and beyond. This can easily be and should be the handbook of the baby boomer generation.
