So one has ample time to face everything one has had, been, done; gather them all in: the things that came from the outside and those from the inside. We have time at last to make them truly ours. The critical task of age is balance, a virtual tightrope of balance, keeping just well enough, just brave enough, just gay and interested and starkly honest enough to remain a sentient human being. Order, cleanliness, seamlessness make a structure that is half support and half ritual, and if does not create, it maintains decency. I make my possessions appear at their best as they are my only companions.

Further on, go further on, one finds that one has arrived at a larger place still, a place of release. What of the part of us, the nameless boundless part who experiences the rout, the witness who saw so much go, who remains undaunted and knows with clear conviction that there is more to us than age?.

See a Problem?

If we have suffered defeat we are somewhere, somehow beyond the battle. If at the end of your life you only have yourself, it is much.

Measure of My Days - Florida Scott-Maxwell - كتب Google

Look and you will find. Scott-Maxwell comes closer than most to putting her inexpressible experience into words. I enthusiastically recommend The Measure of My Days to all those who are ready to accept that we are all aging. Again, it sounds like one to put on the list to read.


I find myself exhausted from managing to return two boxes to Amazon print labels, tape, take to Heritage for pick-up. I lack time to ponder what it means to be 84! You chose a good time to be in Hawaii.

Blog at WordPress. What an excellent addition to your blog! I love learning about books that someone else has already gone to the trouble of reading and summarizing for me. This one sounds wonderful. I'm looking forward to learning more about Florida Scott-Maxwell, and to more of these Prose Interlude gems. Excellent - really enjoyed that - yes it is frustrating having all those books on our shelves and no way of sharing them - may I also suggest The Creative Age - Awakening Human Potential in the Second Half of Life by Gene D.

Cohen - although the author is relatively young - being only in his 50s I think!

It is an interesting and motivating book to read. Posted by: eema Wednesday, 27 June at AM. I agree about Darlene. Also, love how this blog is so dynamic and keeps adding new interesting features -- mirrors what makes our lives vibrant, keeps our minds sharp throughout the aging process. Isn't this what makes life worthwhile?
