By 1958, there were an estimated 350,000 color sets in the United States, the bulk of which were manufactured by RCA [11].That number had jumped to 500,000 by early 1960 [12].I moved across the country, changed my career, pursued an awakened consciousness, learned about energy healing, and realized that I could do a lot more than I thought I could.

If I had succumbed to that way of thinking, how differently the last twenty years would have gone.

Now, looking back at the unkind decade of my thirties, from the vantage point of almost sixty, I realize it was the inspiration for the rest of my life.

I was raising four children alone on a teacher’s salary and the state-ordered minimum child support. One late night in June, at the top of the Eiffel Tower, I was watching fireworks over the City of Lights and feeling very alone – not lonely – just alone.

It gave me the courage to follow my own unconventional life path, which was far more fun than what was expected of me. After all that Frances Mayes has done to bring the beauty of this part of Italy to life for the rest of us, it would be a shame not to go. One thing will be certain; wherever I am, I will be wearing a tee shirt that reads: . Thanks Karen for sharing your wisdom with the Sixty and Me community!
