Recommended Reading: The Wisdom of the Aged

Here’s a program on PBS about caring for our parents that you might want to catch.

And here’s an article about the wisdom of the aged.

I just love this statement:

“A paradox of old age is that older people have a greater sense of well-being than younger ones – not because they’re unreservedly blissful, but because they accept a mixture of happiness and sadness in their lives, and leverage this mixture when events come their way. They waste less time on anger, stress and worry.”
