RENÉE O'CONNOR PAGES (continued)

WOMEN AND MIDDLEHOOD

The lead story in the book Women and Middlehood - Halfway Up the Mountain by Jane Treat and Nancy Geha is Renée O'Connor's account of her 1996 Kilimanjaro climb. They describe the subject of the book this way:Middlehood women – from 40 o 65 – are in a powerful and rich time of life, but we are also struggling to come to grips with the changes going on within us. These contradictory feelings are brought on by both growing strengths and the waning of familiar ways of life. It often feels like climbing a mountain.

RENÉE ON ACTING

"There are moments when you are acting when you have no separation from the character, and of course the goal is to have that all the time. I think it may be easier on some levels to do the theater because you can sustain this feeling longer without breaking in and out. I love these heightened moments in any capacity I can get them."

Grit Wheatley is an artist who divides her time between Birmingham Alabama and Nordhausen, Germany. Clearly a Xena fan, she has done paintings of Gabrielle, Xena, Renée O'Connor, and Lucy Lawless. Her paintings can be seen in the restaurant "Alt Ellrich" in Ellrich, Germany or on her YouTube Channel.

XENA BODY ARMOUR

According to the Christian Science Monitor, the US military is developing "Xena: Warrior Princess style body armour" for women. The idea is for the armour to conform more closely to the shape of the female body. Currently, female soldiers have a choice of 11 sizes of male body armour. The US Army is testing eight additional sizes made specifically for women, with, among other changes, more-narrow shoulders and bra-shaped darting in the chest.
