“The older I get, the more difficult I find it to take the world seriously. At close quarters it can appear merciless, almost threatening, but with increasing distance it looks more and more comical.” — From the Introduction
Notker Wolf takes a lighthearted, refreshing approach to life that any reader will find delightful! Each of his anecdotes and stories has a nugget of wisdom that will resonate especially with anyone who has struggled against the outward signs of aging. As Wolf says, the soul doesn't age; it's timeless and measures itself by a different standard than the body.
If we focused on the state of our soul—a soul which is resolutely vibrant, cheerful, and full of zest for life—we wouldn't resist aging at all. We would speak of growing fulfillment and joy. A wonderful collection of food for thought on a topic that each of us will face in the second half of life!
“The author rescues aging from the darker side of the human condition…finding entertainment and humor where some of us might have given up hope.”
