A guest post in comics
by Stephanie Watson, award-winning children’s book author of Pencilvania
Greetings readers! I have a delightful change of pace for you today–a playful take on reading glasses from cartoonist and fellow Minnesota author Stephanie Watson.
Despite the fact that we are all aging lifelong, acknowledging our need for readers is often the first time that many of us face the fact we are growing older and our body is changing. Stephanie acknowledges this with equanimity and humor–a terrific step toward aging with positivity.
We can actually live longer and healthier when we avoid going down the rabbit hole of anxiety, fear of aging and negative stereotypes. There’s lots to look forward to as the years roll by.
