New Library book on aging well:
Palmer, Parker J. On the Brink of Everything:
Grace, Gravity, and Getting Old. (2018)
Call no.: 155.6719 P175
From bestselling author Parker J. Palmer comes a brave and beautiful book for all who want to age reflectively, seeking new insights and life-giving ways to engage in the world. “Age itself,” he
says, “is no excuse to wade in the shallows. It's a reason to dive deep and take creative risks ...The laws of nature that dictate sundown dictate our demise. But how we travel the arc toward the sunset of our lives is ours to choose: will it be denial, defiance, or collaboration?” With compassion and chutzpah, gravitas and levity, Palmer writes about cultivating a vital inner and outer life, finding meaning in suffering and joy, and forming friendships across the generations that bring new life to young and old alike.
