Product Description HOW I LEARNED I’M OLD is a collection of humorous essays embedded with a smattering of serious insights. Together, they tell the tale of about what happens when middle age mysteriously departs and old age claims its territory.For this country’s 38 million BABY BOOMERS, topics like ‘The New Party Game’ (counting wrinkles on other women’s faces), the insulting arrival of chin hairs and the sudden inability to monitor personal opinions in the presence of strangers have universal appeal. So do chapters about ‘Mean Girls’ in their seventies and the emotional legacy of mothers.The book is divided into sections; “Mind” “Body” and “Spirit”. Always with a comical overtone, it also delves into the more important benefits and realizations of the aging process; what friends teach us by example, who we miss most when they’re gone and which values really matter.A former regional media writer/producer, Romney Humphrey is a produced playwright Off-Off-Broadway, in California and the Northwest. She has won national awards for her media writing and producing. About the Author Romney Humphrey is a writer and playwright residing in the Pacific Northwest and California. Her plays have been performed in New York, Seattle and California. She has written and produced extensive television, video, print and media projects for clients throughout the country. A former educator, her original children's television pilot, "Outside In" won a National Parent's Choice Award. She was a writer for the PBS award winning series "The Art of Aging." After a first career as an educator, she then worked as a writer/producer at a regional television station and as an independent consultant. That was a rich and rewarding process, not just because she doesn't suffer from PTSD when viewing promotional videos, unlike when she walks past any elementary school at recess and recalls the nightmare of playground duty. She wrote her first book, "The May December Twist" after hearing several stories about older women and much younger men having highly successful and long-lasting relationships. Also, as someone with a short attention span, she thought it would be a great challenge to see if she could remember, day after day, previous chapters she'd written. (She didn't. Constantly having to re-read her own book to recall the storyline was exhausting.)
