Dixie Laite Age Against the Machine 1

The best part of aging? Earning the right to give less f—s

  1. Frank Burrows says:

    Wonderful piece.

  2. Hotsy Malone says:

    Love this piece and how she owns getting old and making it something to aspire to! Nothing replaces having gone thru monumental times and coming out on top, strong, super cool, gorgeous. Can’t wait to read more from this talented lady.

  3. Jenni says:

    “And a grand one, at that. What else you got?”
    Reminds me of something Henry Rollins once said: “When life hands you lemons, say, ‘Oh yeah? I LIKE lemons! WHAT ELSE YA GOT?'”
    I am 46, disabled, unmarried, and living through a pandemic that won’t go away because of Covid Karen and Pandemic Paul.
    I never thought I’d see the fucking day.

  4. Dixie Laite says:

    Jenni, I love, love, LOVE that Henry Rollins quote! I’m going to start using it! You’ve got a lot on your plate right now, and you deserve an effin’ medal, but I’m hoping that at least you and I come out the other side of this fierce AF.
