Passing through 50
Sir - I enjoyed reading Carol Hunt's article on turning 50 (Sunday Independent, December 13). I celebrated that milestone myself last year. Having heard gloomy stories from some of my friends who had passed this significant date in their own lives and how it had affected them, I decided I wasn't going to be like them.
I threw a party and invited all my friends. I even took out an ad in a local magazine inviting all my supporters who had supported me in the previous local elections.
I also wrote a letter about reaching this milestone in my life and its significance in relation to friendships in my life. Your sister newspaper printed it.
