Jane Fonda was once asked what she learned, through a multi-talented, 60+ year career what she learned about handling the peaks and the valleys…. Here is what she had to say.


“Embrace it all. And it doesn\’t have to peak and then be all downhill. I am over the hill in a chronological sense, but there is a whole vista out there that I didn\’t anticipate. So you can reach the peak and then you can go down and it can be just as interesting. It\’s a good idea not to pay too much attention to what other people think are the peaks and valleys.”

—Jane Fonda






How we should be encouraged to see the vistas!

You\’re not going down, you are just being grateful for the new vista, the next new vista. Stay looking up and onwards.


I\’m Keeping Vista Views for us All,
