There s a lot to be said for The Clarity of Hindsight and for making it to age 50! Author Julie L. Kessler has crammed a lot of living into those years, and she shares them in her insightful new book Fifty-Fifty, The Clarity of Hindsight. This compilation of lessons learned by the 50-year-old lawyer, wife, mother and world traveler contains 50 chapters that describe her fascinating travel, work and life adventures around the globe and at home. She has lived and worked abroad, speaks several languages and writes in wonderful Clarity about her often hilarious, yet sometimes heartbreaking experiences. The daughter of immigrant parents, the author notes that her mother traveled right up to the end of her life, which came just three months following her 51st birthday. In her honor, and to mid-centurions everywhere, I devote these writings. The very best is right now and exactly where you are headed. Wherever that may be.
Fifty-Fifty, The Clarity of Hindsight is a compilation of the lessons learned by a fifty-year-old lawyer, wife, mother, daughter of immigrant parents, survivor and thriver, though not of course always in that order. By professional and personal circumstances, the author has traveled to nearly fifty countries, lived abroad as an expatriate twice (first in Japan and then in France) and speaks several languages. The book apropos of the title, contains fifty chapters, recounts many fascinating travel vignettes and astute observations, reflects on interesting work related "war" stories, and is often hilarious as only truth can be - and sometimes heartbreaking, as life sometimes is.
