Whenever we visit people, they have the tv or music on, computers, cell phones ringing and dinging. I have become aware of how rare it is to be unwired! We have computers, and each own a cell phone, but neither of us feel the need to be plugged in any more than that. We do use our computers at home for many things, but feel no need to have access to them at all times.
My husband is a minimalist, and although I am not so much, whenever we bring something new into the house, something else goes out. Our house is small, spacious and easy to clean.
I really enjoy articles about women over 60 looking and feeling great. This is the best time in my life.

I attempted to contact the magazine on the "contact us" page, but I couldn't get the link to work.
I just want to let you know how disappointed I've become with your magazine. I subscribed to your magazine soon after I turned 40, I am now 46. It's the only women's magazine that I subscribe to. Over the last several months I have been more and more frustrated that there's ANY information for women in their 30's. They have PLENTY of magazines that are catered to that age group. More mag was supposed to be for the over 40 crowd--what happened?
I like to get hip fashion advice for my age, hair, make-up, product info for women of my age. I would also like to request less air brushing with your models. I'm looking at Courtney Cox now all soft looking. We want to see real people--yeah, maybe people who look good for their age. It doesn't have to be a celebrity on your cover. If they've had work done or use fillers, botox, whatever, be honest about it and tell us. Maybe we'll try those products too or not.
I'm experiencing the shifting hormones of peri-menopause--my body's changing. I don't want to see your magazine go for the under 40 crowd. There are plenty of women over 40 who could benefit from your original magazine objectives.
Please get it back together for us!!
Dear Ms. Seymour:
I've enjoyed your magazine ever since it came out. I'm not interested in fashion but in the lives and thoughts intelligent women, and I've often enjoyed your book reviews, etc. However, I must add that I am 70, still teaching at a university, and offended that your magazine seems to stop at women who are in their seventies. Surely you must be aware of active, healthy, and intelligent women who are still at work way beyond their sixties. I remember the cover article of a Newsday Sunday magazine several years ago which featured the faces of many, many people still active and working who were one hundred years or over. With a bit of luck we will be seeing more and more of that. Please consider the older women whom you seem to be excluding--and count us in.
Hi Lesley! Love you, what you have to say in your Letter from the Editor but wish your magazine would not be so politically left wing - maybe a story on how Katie Coric was not a fair journalist to Sarah Palin - What?? The media darling...Sarah brought down the 'old boys network in Alaska' - something to be applauded for by strong women but no one talks about that. Your magazine is getting thinner, less advertisers, less articles, maybe that's why! I know I used to subscribe but really am tired about the lines that not only the media draws but magazines as well. We are educated women, treat us as such -tired of the left garbage
Is more becoming less and less germane to its original audience? It would seem so - the target audience seems to be shifting: what happened to the focus goal of this magazine: to be aimed at the "more seasoned" intelligent woman still interested in beauty, fashion, travel, sports, life, perhaps with more money to spend, more life behind her - and with no intention of fading away? Madame Lear, remember?
