Times are changing! We are about to have more senior citizens in this country than ever before. Products, advertising, entertainment, and services are becoming more focused on this older generation. It is a wonderful time to grow older. Yes, ourMoreTimes are changing! We are about to have more senior citizens in this country than ever before. Products, advertising, entertainment, and services are becoming more focused on this older generation. It is a wonderful time to grow older. Yes, our world is being transformed around us faster than ever, and we need to evolve with it. Men have learned to change diapers, and women can be construction workers. We have exchanged household help for food processors, cooking for take-out, and leisurely dining for fast foods. We used to read more, listen to the radio, and write letters- now we watch TV, talk on the telephone, and fax.It is written that there is a time to weep and a time to laugh. The trick is to know which one to do when. Given a choice, lets go with the laughter.Ive seen Natashas audiences burst out in laughter, cheers, and applause at her verse. She captures the double standards, the dual ambitions, the ambiguities and worries, and above all, the hopes and aspirations that are so much a part of modern womens lives, and she captures it all with marvelous humor. - Judy Mann, The Washington PostMany thanks for your beautiful book and words of encouragement. I really enjoyed reading your poems. They were touching and inspiring, and really captured the spirit of being a grandmother! - Ann W. Richards, Former Governor of TexasI had so much fun reading her book. - Ms. Mary Kay, Mary Kay CosmeticsNatasha Josefowitzs gentle and funny poetry sneaks its way into our hearts the way subtle humor does... the laughter of recognition comes first and the tears of remembrance come later. - Warren Bennis, Joseph Debell Chair of Management, University of Southern California
