I am visiting my parents and relaxing with old magazines in the sun. One of my mother's regular reads is a magazine for the 40+ lady. It has a regular column where a famous woman in the 40+ age group tell what she did when she was 25. They tell of uncertainty and sometimes frustration, and few of them had started anything like a career.
This is a great comfort for people like me; under 30. Hope is definitely not over yet. Why does not magazines for the 20-something woman tell of this wisdom? Instead they focus on the bright young things, surfing life on a different league from the rest of us.
