|Painting by Xu Zhao Qian|
Although those of us approaching or already in the midst of this saging third of our lives have much to appreciate and enjoy, the wisdom accumulated over a lifetime often clashes with the admonitions of others to pursue the life of the forever young. Each of us must come to terms with those messages that are at odds with who we have become.
