Older adults thoughtfully examine their lives in late age. They help each other to deal with keeping their lives interesting and fruitful.

They don’t have to ‘explain themselves’. They have an equal right to come forward and express themselves in their own terms.

See that you are not alone in your concerns.  Read the truth about what older adults really think and feel.

A reader comments, “When I read your blog, it makes me very happy. It makes me think about my feelings. But it also is such a beautiful blog to read. It is very hopeful, not sad.”
