How do you feel today?    I feel ...

Without my twenty to forty years of clutter, the lightness I feel here in this new home is good. Come to think of it, this move liberated me. It refreshed and energized me somehow, knowing I had to make new friends here, start new projects, plant my roots anew in journalist, political, feminist, and writers' groups (the interests of my past)--even try something truly new for me.

Source Notes: The Fountain of Age (chapter 11, "To Move or to Stay?") (1993). Friedan talks about a move made when she was in her mid-sixties, from New York to California, to teach. She argues: "Older, we must move, and stay, and move again, to keep our life-giving ties alive, for this movement is our fountain of age. And there's a freedom in realizing this, a new freedom to move or stay, new necessities and possibilities of choice."
