By
“WAY to Go, Gloria!” ILLUSTRATION BY VOS

Having just turned 80, Gloria Steinem, the name and face of women’s liberation and feminism from the ’60s, is asked if she had any regrets. “Well,” she replies, “actually, it’s not so much what I would have done differently; it’s that I would have done it much faster.”

By
ILLUSTRATION BY VOS

Lately we’ve been finding ourselves, instead of in bed reading, out for some nocturnal enjoyment. One such spell started with an invitation from Ingrid Sala Santamaria for a concert of hers with the Manila Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Arturo Molina.

Why these seniors still attend their class reunions

By
ASSUMPTION Class ’55: Mandy C. Torres, Cora B. Lopa, Chinggay D. Lagdameo, Myrna T. Sanchez, Bea B.Tan, Ana Olondriz

March, the month of graduations, is about the time we seniors—in age, that is—mark our own milestone alumni homecomings. And for our own diamond high school jubilee, my balikbayan classmates are busy preparing for a trip home.

Chaste love


By

I was brought back to gentler times, leafing through the pages of Menchu Concepcion’s tribute to her husband, Ronnie, on his 80th birthday, three years ago. She had left a copy for me at the wake of the son of an old friend, a nephew of hers.

What I want to be when I’m older


By
“THIS is no costume party, this is for real!”

Presuming, of course, there’s time yet to be anything other than older, I do have some thoughts about what I’ll be then. They’re really not so much about becoming something or someone else as about going out in some style, with an image to be remembered by.

Never too old for a good fight


By
ILLUSTRATION BY STEPH BRAVO

Growing up, growing old, making memories


By

Alarms going off in seniorhood


By

Yes, tell me about it, Matthew. But if you mean I’m accountable for everything God-given, then I only hope I’m not too late in taking up this mission of retrieving, regrowing and preserving what I can.

Post-Valentine high


By
“FULL MOON and Two Half-Empty King-Size Beds”

When things go right, they can be just too marvelous for words. Bumping into old friends Celia and Rene Barrientos (with their widower neighbor Dr. Clipper Lorenzo, another old friend) at the same Italian restaurant for Sunday breakfast was getting too regular to mean nothing. My husband Vergel has such a thing about “patterns revealed in nature”—about “everything being eventual,” as he had in fact mused about in this section only last Sunday—that I knew he would not let it go without finding some meaning to it.

The high cost of living


By

Too late, I’m told, at 74, to get medical insurance. I had thought so, imagining the conditions I’m bound to develop by then—“preexisting,” as they say.

‘I was Leo’s comic relief, and he was my Valium’; ‘Valentine who?’

By
RENE and Celia Barrientos

Among the couples I sought to hear from, it was the husbands, even the normally outspoken ones, who were surprisingly Valentine-shy, their need for privacy in this case almost desperate.
