"I didn't want you to grow up to be a loose woman," my mother said not long before she died. “But I see I have failed miserably.” This is how Kay Bolden's mother story begins.
Kay Bolden is a writer, speaker and Assistant Editor at PS I Love You, the largest publication on Medium.com focusing on essays, fiction and poetry. Always dreaming of faraway places, Kay finally picked up her backpack at age 55 and hiked out to see the world. Since then, she has solo trekked through Europe, South America and the United States. Her children share her wanderlust, and ran off as soon as it was legal--absolute proof, she says, of effective parenting. She shares her adventures in her new book, The Young and the Rest of Us, available February 13 on Amazon. Kay lives in San Diego with her dog Fergus, where she is writing her second novel and searching for the perfect microbrew. Follow her at:

If it's not 1 Thing, explores the topic of 'mother' from every angle imaginable and some you have not thought of. Each week, hosts Katie Mitchell and Lupe Padilla Mitchell share a new story and have great conversations with the writers, many of whom are in fact not writers by trade. We have excerpts from best selling novels, memoirs, poetry award winners, songwriters, stay at home moms, insurance brokers, teachers, actors, college students and beyond. Some famous. Some not at all. But they all have incredible tales to tell. Story is in our DNA. It's how we make sense of the world around us. We have so much to teach each other. We welcome you to rate and review us.
