Priya Magic of Women in Full Bloom engages in lively honest conversations with women from around the country and differnt walks of life about the in's and out's of life for us women in the transition years after menopause from 55-65.
There's much talk these days about women over 50! Have you heard about or even felt the over fifty Invisible Factor? Many of us begin to get the feeling that as we step into that over 50 age we become invisible. Lumping all women over fifty into one category is another way of the culture making us invisible.
Over fifty is a vast realm that we as women know has many nuances that are in and of themselves and entire world. The passage from the end of menopause into the early sixties is a very unique one and deserves much care and attention as any other phase of life. Just as the passage of 40-50 is unique, 50-60, 60-70, and 70-80 and on are all distinct journeys. It is time to step out of the realm of the invisible and be seen and heard for these distinctions!
Hear what your sisters are going through. Laugh, Cry, and feel the support of honest and vulnerable sharing from other real women who are facing the challenges of Relationship, Work, Family and Passions as we all move into being 'Older" women! Let's do it together and have fun with it by sharing what were are going through together.
Priya's style is engaging, intimate and offers you chance to let down and get real!
This week our top story is the silly lawsuit that House Speaker John Boehner says he will file against the President for supposed abuse of Executive Power. We will also have updates on Russia and Ukraine and the important Supreme Court decision that affects whether womens clinics can keep abortion protesters at bay.
At the end we will have our trademark weekly hall of fame and shame for those politicians and prominent individuals who made great sense or shameful nonsense, respectively.
If you want to write to me and give me your opinion of any topic I cover, write to firstname.lastname@example.org and I may just read your opinion on the air. Again that’s email@example.com

Participate by joining us in the chatroom!
Cat spent his early childhood, and summers through grade school, on Monhegan Island off of the Maine coast. He remains strongly influenced by the island's nautical history, rugged landscape, and the resourcefulness and hard work that one needs to live there year-round.
He began studying metalsmithing 14 years ago. He started working as a professional jeweler in 2004, and graduated from Maine College of Art in 2009 with a BFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design. He have received scholarships to study at Penland School of Crafts, Peters Valley, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and has tught workshops on basic metalsmithing, sand casting, and decorative sailor knotting. In 2012 he produced his first line of production jewelry, under the title Barbarian Enterprises.
He employs a variety of techniques in the design and manufacture of his work, from sand casting to sailor knotting, 3-d modeling to forging.He utilizes the skills of other professionals when economically and/or conceptually appropriate, and in these instances give credit in the product description.He believes that the method used to produce a piece of jewelry (or any object) resonates within it, even if it is not obvious to a casual observer.

This Thursday, May 22nd at 3 p.m. PDT, we'll be going back into the MetalSmith BenchTalk archives. We'll be re-airing one of our favoite chats with jewelry and hollowware designer and maker Cynthia Eid.
About: Cynthia Eid's hammered metalwork has won awards for creativity and design, featured in many publications, and exhibited extensively. Eid's sculptural jewelry and hollowware is primarily done in Argentium Silver and formed through the creative use of hammers and/or a hydraulic press. Currently an independent metalsmith and educator, she is a Jeweler and Silversmith based in Massachusetts USA, teaching weekly classes at Metalwerx and the De Cordova Museum School, and workshops and short courses all over the USA. Previously, she has worked as a designer/maker in goldsmith galleries, and as modelmaker/supervisor in a gold jewelry factory. Cynthia earned her Master of Fine Arts in Metalsmithing and Jewellery Design from Indiana University in 1980 and has a B.S. in Art Education.
The paradox that “soft”, fluid-looking metal has evolved from flat, stiff rectangles though force, determination, and tenacity enchants me. I am entranced by the metal’s progressive transformation -- through hammering, persuasion, and struggle --- from a lifeless plane of metal toward an object of vibrancy, unity and fluidity.
Experimentation, serendipity, a sense of play, and the subconscious mind determine the forms of my work. The forms have their roots in my gardens, and my meanderings through the woods and along the water’s edge. In my work, the allusions to nature are intentionally ambiguous, to encourage interactive response and contemplation by the viewer.
