Crone #6.
Only $9.95. Save 17%.

This rich, in-depth, 128 page issue is jam-packed with stories on how we find our home. Here's a sneak peek at a few of the stories that appear in this upcoming issue.

Where Shall We Live? The Green House Alternative. A growing movement of nursing home alternatives, Green Houses® honor residents and staff while fostering physical and spiritual well-being. We also look at the co-housing movement as another humane alternative to women living alone.

Strong Crones Unite! Independent, and fiercely themselves, Barbara Ardinger and Grace Blindell share their perspectives in our two featured interviews. Barbara's latest book, Secret Lives, is an epic novel that explores the lives of a coven of crones and erupts with the power of truth-telling — and more than a little bit of old-fashioned magic. At 92, Grace Blindell still appreciates a life of exploration and adventure, as she shares tales of her exploits with us.

Finding Our Own Way Home. Sometimes the independence we crave after a lifetime of caring for others requires sacrifice. Both Deborah Gideon ("My Green Kin-dom") and Terry Watrous Berry ("Where the Heart Is") found new homes and passions by having the courage to make clean breaks with their past domiciles — and, to some extent, with their previous ways of thinking about themselves.

The Solace of the Desert. Even a short-term sojourn outside our usual environs can offer a fresh appreciation for the lives we have made; both Elizabeth Maginnis ("How I Came to Love the Desert") and Lizann Bassham ("As the Raven Flies") find serenity — in spite of their original negative impressions — in the severe beauty of the Mojave desert.

Crone Action: OLOC. If cronehood is the time to throw off the shackles of convention, then there's no better example than that offered by OLOC, a group that simultaneously shatters two conventional taboos by defiantly proclaiming themselves both "old" and "lesbian." Discover these feisty campaigners in this issue's "Crone Action" article.
