The Blackberry Tea Club weaves together essays, stories, and poetry, celebrating mid-life in all its silliness, sorrow, and glory. Bottom line: middle age is much more than menopause. These are the Glory Years for women, years that bring about the expansion and reorganizing of the mind, heart, and spirit, and the birthing of a larger self of immense compassion, intellect, will, spirit, love, and capability.
Divided into five parts, each one explores different themes: 1. Seeing mid-life crisis as an adamant search for joy; 2. Discovering opportunities for women to appreciate their bodies; 3. Exploring multiple facets of love; 4. Letting go of the bad stuff to relish "what light there is".
The Blackberry Tea Club offers stories of adventure, food, spirit, and the community of women in their Glory Years.
