Hi … I’m Ang … a Sydney based writer, age activist and ‘midlife explorer’ who is passionate about disrupting ageing and eschewing the societal script that depicts middle age as the beginning of the ‘long goodbye.’
In case you’re wondering, I am not in the market for ‘sensible’, ‘beige’, ‘elasticised’ or ‘dependable’ anything and nor am I ready to assign decline, dementia, decrepitude or death as the avatars of ageing. I’m under no illusion that I looked twenty-five and nor do I aspire to; I’m just not ready to surrender to the vagaries or monotony of what middle (and beyond) has traditionally been coupled with. Here, on the pages of Ang I Am, I (over)share stories about the changing face of midlife, as I reimagine a new roadmap for the second half of life.
When I’m not writing, you’ll find me reading, exercising, planning my next adventure or hanging out with my elderly, deaf and needy dog called Stan.
