“Be bold in doing the rest of your life.”

That’s what Gail Sheehy wrote in my copy of her groundbreaking book Passages in 1976 when I interviewed her for a daily newspaper in St. Louis. Now I’ve been asked to interview her again, during her book tour for "Daring: My Passages," Sheehy’s new autobiography.

I can’t wait to tell Sheehy how often in the past 39 years I have heeded her advice, choosing the challenging option instead of the safe one. Such rich wisdom, so freely given in a simple autograph!
