BLOG--Book Reviews, Anecdotes about Life, Iran, and More

I am posting this video as inspiration to any 50+ year old woman who is feeling less confident about herself as she grows older. I have been fascinated by this woman who became a model at or near the age of 50, with her mane of gray hair and her supermodel bone structu...

One journalist's joyous trip to Shiraz, Iran. [Please note that some journalists have not had the same experience}. I had some of the same wondrous experiences of Iran during the summer of 1978, but did not possess such a gorgeous accent or set of brilliant white teeth...
