Yes, Donna O’Klock is my real name!
My goal with my blog, is to inspire you to live healthfully and beautifully, and to think about life and aging differently. We can’t hold back the hands of time, but there is no need get old!
I am sharing things that I’ve figured out, that are part of my daily life. And for things I don’t know, I am asking and sharing advice from brilliant people who are great examples to me. (Be prepared: sometimes I may throw in a “horrible warning!”)
I hope you will find this fun, irreverent in all the right places, and useful.
I am in a wonderful relationship with my handsome Harley dude (10 years now, a world record for me). I have a kind and multi-talented-artist son. I have been a hair stylist for more than 30 years (professional problem-solver and image-maker) . I took a sabbatical, but came back to the salon life with a renewed appreciation for the personal interactions that are the hallmark of the this industry. Besides, I really missed the smell of hair spray in the morning!
I have been a closet writer since writing my first play in 3rd grade for a competition…only to lose to Randy Dayton and his stupid play about Martians! I’ve been dabbling in short stories, children’s books, and poetry ever since. I am also currently writing a book called, “Sick and Tired…and Sexy” about living beautifully with chronic illness.
I’m a book and magazine addict (new fave – Garden & Gun), and I pursue photography and cooking as hobbies. I’m one of “those people” who love to post food photos on FB!
i will prove that you can have the whole enchilada (just not too often) and that “You CAN be sexy past sixty!”
The clock’s ticking…
