A thoughtful, and thought-provoking piece. It took me until recently, post-50, to come to terms with pink. My changing hair colour made me re-consider...then I wore, and realized there's a particular pleasure. As a mother of 3 sons, and sister to 3 brothers. Thank you for posting.

My latest book is a caregiving memoir, Dance Me to the End: Ten Months and Ten Days With ALS. I am now on Substack with The Unschool for Writers: a DIY MFA.
