I once thought I was going to Live Hard and Die Young. That didn't work out! Maybe I didn't live hard enough, I don't know. But here I am, looking back at everything.
So, now what? Well, first thing, of course I DEMAND RESPECT!
But, Eldering isn't really something you are; it's something you DO. The idea around Eldering is how older people can relate and function in the world. But in order to do that at all, there has to be some understanding of how their society looks at them, and chooses to relate to them.
So, we're going to look at how we relate to the elderly, both around the world and throughout time.
And we'll find ways for people to live with respect, and self-respect in todays world.
Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
