Welcome to Grandmotherly Wisdom!

Grab a cup of tea and make yourself at home. This is your cozy corner of the Internet where you can relax and ponder upon the big questions in life from the perspective of small, everyday things.

Here are some questions we’re going to explore here together:

  • Why is everyone afraid of growing old? What can we do to make our final decades of life joyful and satisfying?

  • What does it mean to be an adult, an elder, a matriarch? How can we cultivate these traits while we’re still young?

  • What are the limits to individual agency and responsibility? Is there a middle path between being a hero and a victim?

  • How can we make the best use of our days without ignoring the people and small things right in front of us?

  • Why does everyone spend most of their time with people of similar age? How can we integrate both our children and elders back into the society?

  • What can we learn from our parents, grandparents and all the generations that came here before us? What can we pass forward to our children, grandchildren, and all their future kids?

If you’re asking yourself similar questions, let’s get in touch. Feel free to leave a comment, join my Substack chat, or reach out to me on Twitter.
