Meeting Middle Mojo
For years I occupied a little corner in the Living/Arts Department at the Boston Globe, covering fashion. I sat next to Joan Anderman, a rock critic who could interview Madonna like nobody's business. I always admired her ear for music, sense of people and ability to write -- and look cool in the process. She was also just fun to be around. We've both left the paper but it was great to catch up with Joan today over lunch about her new project: Middle Mojo, her quest to write songs, and understand the creative process at midlife. She and Jackie O, who turned a lifelong love of reading and writing into a profession at midlife, would have had a lot to talk about. Follow Joan @middlemojo.
