Empty Nest—New This Spring...
Empty Nest is a real magazine for real people. Our editors and writers share your joys and concerns—we’re like your best friends out for drinks and dinner on a Saturday night, collaborating on how you’re going to deal with your child studying abroad, with planning a destination wedding with a child who lives 3,000 miles away, with helping Mom when she needs long-term care, with financing your child’s business venture (or college tuition!). There is nothing friends can’t help with.
Ever thought about journaling? In our Mind section, clinical nurse Marian Buckner recommends it as one way we can learn about ourselves. What do you know about chiropractic care and how it can help with the aches and pains of middle age? See our Body department for Dr. Dan’s advice. Have you ever read Nora Ephron? You might want to after you check out Culture and Lauren McKinney’s review of I Feel Bad About My Neck.
Gerontologist Clare Frey contributed a feature that outlines government benefits available currently to seniors, via a film review of the Tom Hanks/Jackie Gleason film Nothing in Common. I disclose the hand wringing I’ve experienced while (and some practical advice for) shipping one daughter off to London for a semester’s study and planning a Maine wedding with another daughter who lives in Southern California. Fun, eh? I’m sure you’ve been there. For more, delve into the issue.
If you love the magazine, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you hate it, drop us a line, too. Or, if you’re not swayed in either direction, also let us know how we can improve. What do you want to read about? How do you want it all to look? What works best for you?
Are you a writer interested in empty nesting topics? Or, an empty nester with a story? Send along your article (or a proposal). We’ll consider it for publication. This is your magazine—let us know how it can best serve you. We’re just coffee klatching here, waiting to hear from our new friends...
Thanks for stopping by. Remember—keep in touch!
