Welcome to 3 Score and More – I’m a proud member of this demographic, and no stranger to life’s reset button. After careers in advertising, communications, and a very rewarding stint in adventure travel, I am tackling a new challenge at a pivotal turn in life.
I often find myself swimming upstream, contrary to expectations of age and gender. In my early 50’s, fresh from the closure of a long-standing marriage (in the vernacular, divorced), and decades in suburbia, I moved back to New York City just to see…
The experimental first year stretched to fifteen, a magical and transformative period. During that time I jump-started a career, earned a graduate degree (ok, an MBA) that broadened and deepened interests, grew professionally, saw two adult sons marry savvy women and was graced by grandchildren. Travel through work whetted a pre-existing condition known as “curiosity about the world” and opened up, literally, new vistas. The travel hook, always there, was now deep-set.

And then, suddenly, I knew it was time to break camp in New York, a city I love and will always long for. But a desire to turn the page, to try something new, inspired me to undertake a drastic change: I moved from an elegant one bedroom apartment (and I emphasize ONE) on New York’s Upper West Side to an 1860’s Italianate town house in Hudson, New York, about 100 miles north of the city. This has been a sea-change, at once defining and expanding opportunities.
So, in a nutshell, that’s me: traveling along a course that’s both external and internal and unfolding in these pages. It is my hope that you’ll come along, and share your own journey via comments, email or the occasional guest post.
I look forward to hearing from you, and here’s to bending, if not breaking, the rules!
