There has been some discussion lately from Patti over at Not Dead Yet Style on the invisibility of women over fifty. While I am not generally an invisible person, I know what she means. Most of the advertisers choose to forget about us--even though we are a significant income pool. Magazines focus on the young and sometimes it seems we are just forgotten.

Rather than feeling helpless about this conundrum, I decided I would do my part to keep others my age from slipping into invisibility. Whenever I see a person my age or older that looks particularly good that day, I make sure I compliment them. One day it was at a graduation. An older women had her hair done in this absolutely perfect bun. I was fascinated by her hair. She had this adorable, sequined pink shawl and coordinated pink dress. I cut my way through the crowd and told her she looked lovely. In the mass of graduates and parents, I think I made a grandmother feel a little less invisible that day.
