Middle (ST)age, Middle Age, Midlife. Whatever you Want to Call it, it's Here!!

Here we are. In this amazing stage of our life... and by "amazing," I mean confusing and new and sometimes hard to handle, and by "our," I mean Yours and Mine. And by gum, yes, it's true.. bum bum bummmmm.... MIDDLE (ST)age! We are being asked not to sit on our possibly slightly more padded bums and contemplate retirement, NO! We are being asked to remain fit, youthful and learn new things at an exponential rate in order to keep up with this ever-changing world. Well, first of all I commend you, for you must be ahead of the curve. You upstart, you! Actually, on your computer absorbing new "content" and reading this "blog." I put it in quotes because I am of a certain age and I had to look it up. But YOU! Wowzer, you got it going on! Congratulations!

This is the prologue for my new blog. (dropped quotes.. I'm catching on!) Merely an introduction and an invitation. I invite you back weekly to see what's here. We will start our week together! I am Stacia Fernandez, actress, writer and deep thinker. And much like the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz quoted, "The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side."

I might get a few things wrong! (please fact check above quote... Mr. Scarecrow, is not so savvy with the math!) But, I will also get some things right. I'm here to help us all get by, get happy and get through this Middle (ST)age of life. I would love to hear from you and can't wait to see where this takes us!

PS: I have written MIDDLE (ST)AGE with my co-writer Jacob Pinion and am starring in the show now available on Stage17.tv. I also will share one episode per blog (the Trailer is below). The show is about a woman named Marina Lippon who is struggling to stay visible and viable as she goes through her Middle (ST)age. (Gee, I wonder where we got the source material!) The episodes are under four minutes. Please enjoy. See you next WEEK!!!

Middle (ST)age is written by Stacia Fernandez and Jacob Pinion and can be seen in it's entirety on Stage17.tv. Follow Stacia at @Fernandezstacia -- follow her character Marina Lippon at @MarinaLippon or follow her page MIDDLESTAGE on Facebook. Just don't follow her around the grocery store. It makes her nervous.
