Silver Sage Magazine was an idea that developed over a few years. I had a bunch of magazine subscriptions coming to the house. Some were for me, a few were for my daughter, and others I collected thinking someone may want to read them when they came to visit.
I would stare at the models in the magazines and wonder if the models were getting younger, if the clothes would look appropriate, and where were the articles that pertained to me? Certainly the magazines didn’t seem targeted for me or my age group. The articles were meant for my daughter (mid-twenties), not me or my friends. Did I really care about “how to please my man” or “how to find my G spot” when after several decades I was pretty sure I had a good idea. The concept of tight abs or how get perkier breasts was completely irrelevant to me. I wanted to know what length dress was best for me, top ten ways to stop my skin from sagging, or best hair dyes for women over 40 would have certainly helped me more.
So, I talked to a lot of friends, colleagues and family to hear what they thought about my idea: an online magazine devoted to adults over the age of forty. Content that was relevant to us: fashion, travel, beauty, health and wellness for our age group. Moreover, articles that were written by and for the traditionalists, baby boomers and generation x’ers of our time seemed important to me and others I talked to.
Many of my friends at the time had an aging parent, and caregiving was a critical and often discussed conversation amongst us. However, each friend was re-inventing the wheel. Every friend was doing similar homework and trying to navigate the same system – but there didn’t seem to be a reservoir for everyone to access. At the time, I had no need for such information as my parents were young 70’s with no health issues. Yet, the idea that someday my mom and dad would need help, and I’d have to do all the research my friends did, made no sense to me. So here you have Silver Sage Magazine. Born out of the need to have a place for all of us to call home, providing worthy information to people and creating a community for others to learn from, share and enjoy.
