How do you feel today?    I feel ...

Fifty was the end of this long familiar plateau that you enter at 13--you know, the country of the female stereotype. And when I got to 50, which is the edge of this territory--indeed the edge used to be 35, 40, we've pushed it to 50--then it was like falling off a cliff. There was no map. Now it's true that I had been fighting with the map. But you're enmeshed in it either way, whether you're obeying it or fighting with it.
