Message To Select Older Women in Power

Most of you no longer have living mothers, or fathers, but one wonders what these past figures central to your success and growth might say: “Lower the volume? Don’t be mean and inaccurate in speech? Wear clothing that is becoming first and au courant last?  Remember that you will not be alive forever. You might consider the great value of a little time spent now in retrospection and preparation for what comes next, whatever that might be (n.b. better not assume that there will be no ‘what comes next’). Vulgarity, vanity, habitual dishonesty, greed and  overweening ambition are not even attractive in youth, and much less so in age.”

Perhaps most importantly, “Do not be dismissive of those of the opposite sex, as you regularly have need of their historically noted virtues and abilities. Don’t forget Chicken Little.”
