Why "THE OTHER SIDE?"
While birthday cards may assert that we're over the hill at 30 or 40 or 50, my experience is that we don't really begin to live life on the other side of the hill until our children are grown and gone, living their own uphill lives.
It's only when the stress of those child-rearing years is behind us that we have time to clearly re-evaluate our priorities, ponder our unrealized dreams, set new goals, and recreate our lives.
The Other Side is about cherishing what was while enjoying what is and anticipating what might be. It's about helping the parents who are currently climbing up the hill with their crew in tow. And it's about the writers who write for them.
What to do with yourself when the laundry is done (most of it anyway), the house is clean (sort of), no one is screaming (except your neighbors' kids), and you have no soccer games to attend.
