About Baby Boomer Girl

BabyBoomerGirl, Radha Sahar Welcome. I’m Radha Sahar, songwriter and painter. This blog features the music of my wacky sub- persona, Baby Boomer Girl.  I often refer to her in the third person as she’s a fun character I act out.  Baby Boomer Girl emerged in a burst of writing inspired by the joy of having a lovely new man in my life.

Baby Boomer Girl struts her generation via rebellious, touching and humorous rock/pop songs. If you want to receive my occasional, fun posts, click Subscribe – Email Updates  or Subscribe via RSS  links, top of the right – hand column.

“No! I won’t sit down!”… “What do you do when your baby son is 32?” …  ” I’m growing young with you …” “Everything is growing slack, you want your youthful figure back …”  I often post my new song lyrics – hope you enjoy them.

I love to read your comments.  I’m on Twitter as babyboomergirl1

Here’s  more about Baby Boomer Girl, in the third person,  from my bio, in the fun rock-music tradition of sex, drugs & rock ‘n roll

Sex
Baby Boomer Girl’s music pulses with born-again enthusiasm for the joys of love; she’s been through the mill with broken marriages, and now in a new-love relationship, (met him on the internet). Baby Boomer Girl’s bright, youthful outfits (by her fashion designer daughter), invite fans to celebrate their own colourful ways of  ‘being out there,’ loving life.

Baby Boomer Girl’s songs, having outgrown ‘young-love’ themes of pop music, are deep, witty, and mature  life & love themes. She has no interest in competing with foxy young things: after all, the only benefit of being in your 20s – firm skin – is not a patch on having it all – the fully liberated girl within & the consummate woman without! This unstoppable gal sings of love, sex & life from sheer happiness and at this age who cares what party-poopers think?

Drugs
In 2009, just turning 60, she’s ‘a real boomer.’ ‘ Drugs’ now means vitamin pills and natural progesterone. ‘Detox’ is a cleansing herbal sweep from the local health shop. She’s currently addicted to waldorf salad, the smell of patchouli, and decaf soy latte. But oh for an anti-aging pill – time is all too visibly ‘in her face!’  So it’s easy exercise regimes, deep sleep, and the latest anti-wrinkle treatment.  She’s walking, swimming, doing hot yoga – with no hint of the decreased energy prescribed for women her age. She’s high on life and determined as she enters the next phase in life to not be a medicated old codger, a boring old fart, or a grumpy old cynic.

Rock ‘n Roll
Baby Boomer Girl is always moved by ‘deep & meaningfuls’ – and many of her songs touch the heart. But she’s also into high-energy rock songs – a dose of light relief…  Through her music she’s ready to laugh at herself – after all, she’s negotiated life’s grim patches, and put serious effort into being a responsible citizen all those years!  It’s time to do a little reaping.  It’s time for this grandmother of three to hit number one in the charts, to strut the stage, firing boomers everywhere to live it up! … Let’s rock, sing & dance while we still can!

    Love the Blog.

    Baby boomers started the notion of more liberal societies – many of us have been too busy providing love and stability for our families to carry it further.

    Well the children are all grown up now, so its back to our special time then.
    Yeay – keep up the blog, I love it.

  5. Hi~
    Just discovered your blog! You seem to be having a great time with it.
    I am also a Baby Boomer, 54 in a couple of months!
    I live in the US. I am an Esthetician and a Pilates Instructor. I also have a blog, it’s very new. It is about skin care and wrinkles, how to figure out what to do and not do in terms of looking your freshest best.
    I am going to bookmark this blog! I’ll come back when I have a decent amount of time to devote to discovering your music, and you.
    So, see you later… oh, I will look you up on Twitter!

    Hi Rada
    Reading your babyboomergirl blog is like busting out of a dark winter into an orange and yellow spring. Internet dating sounds like a universal adventure

    Hello dear aunty,

    so nice to hear you are happy in love and life, I am too could not be happier awaiting the next step which is inevitably marriage and children. Every cloud has a silver lining should your marriages not have failed you would have never met your internet hunk its funny how the universe has our lives planned out beyond our control.
    Love to you xoxox M

  9. Great to meet you Deana – I’m particularly touched by your feeling kinship in being ‘global neighbors’ – I agree – the internet has enabled that to explode!

    I feel a connection to Nederland since, when I was a child, I became close friends with a Dutch girl who had just immigrated here and could not speak English. It wasn’t long before we closed the language barrier – her learning English and me, a little Hollands. I wasn’t fluent, could never read or write it, and I’ve pretty much lost it all now. But the affection and connection to the language remains.

    As a child I used to dream/fantasize that I could speak every language in the world. That dream has never left me, deep down; I think it is what drives my inspiration to communicate through music – (it being a sort of universal language). We are one heart.

  10. Babyboomergirl, thank you for visiting my blog.
    Yes I do follow you back on twitter.

    I see on your blog you even take into account the size of the letters here on the comment block.
    My eyes are just one year older then yours. I just turned 61.

    I like your blog and your song. This is a subject that a lot of people has to deal with. I have relatively young kids. I became a mother at 40 and 41, so my kids are 21 and 19 now.

    I can so relate to losts of the things you wrote about yourself.

    I will sure come back and keep reading what you have to say on your blog.
    Hope to get to know you in the new future.
    How cool is this, You in New Zealand and I’m in the Netherlands and it looks like you’re telling the story of somebody living just an hour drive from me.
    All this because of Internet.

    Tweet with you on twitter. I just registered on Facebook too, but I havn’t have my full registration and don’t know how things are woking there. In due time I’ll invite you to join me on Facebook too.

    Deana
