This book is a collection of stories from people in the age-brackets of 50, 60, 70 and 80, reflecting on their journey through life and the changes they have made. They share with readers how they have found a deeper meaning and purpose to how they live, and how this has brought harmony, joy, appreciationand acceptance of what the journey of ageing offers us.
They felt that by sharing these diverse stories in a book they could perhaps help others to remember how it felt for them when they were children. How life can be wondrous and joyful, and if we can let go of all the impositions that we have allowed life to put upon us, we can have a joy-filled older age.
This book is dedicated to all those who feel that perhaps there is more to life – that they can delve more deeply within and find that joy of which our writers speak. It has become clear to many of the writers that there is far more to life than the five senses reveal and that our bodies have an amazing ability to show us how to live if we choose to listen.
