More About this Book
Enhanced by some eighty-five photographs depicting various scenes from life and nature, this book shows how to make the later years a source of hope rather than a time of loneliness — a way out of darkness into the light. “Aging,” the authors write, “is not a reason for despair, but a basis of hope, not a slow decaying, but a gradual maturing, not a fate to be undergone but a chance to be embraced.” And they remind us of our responsibility to incorporate the aged into the fabric of our own lives — helping them become teachers again so they may help us repair the fragmented connections between generations.
