In this book, writer-poet Luci Shaw has given us a lifetime of exquisite reflections on nature, love, death, suffering, loss, faith, doubt, creativity, curiosity, lifelong learning—all of it drawn from the breadth of her own experience, harvested in penetrating and lyrical insights.

Her spirit of adventure, her brave transparency, and her openness to all that life offers (as well as inflicts) makes her a captivating and hope-inspiring mentor.For most of us, growing older is a reality we put off as long as possible—until we realize with a shock that it is happening to us. We immediately look around to see how others on the path just ahead of us are dealing with it. So here is the intrepid Luci Shaw, taking readers on a virtual hike with her, with steps more deliberate and slow but also with surprising vistas that fill us with gratitude.In this book Luci serves as a fearless and eloquent scout. As she traverses new territory, she records her experiences lovingly, honestly, sorrowfully, joyfully—here's what it's like, and here's what to be ready for. These field notes will inform your own journey, no matter what your age.
From the Anatomy of Life to the Architecture of Living
Paperback ISBN: 9057185075
Age is the first book bringing together an interdisciplinary and intergenerational mix of studies, research, reflections, projects and activism against ageism and exploring the opposite. Age wants to contribute to the escape routes out of a society driven by competition and profit and divided by class, income, race, sex, education and age. Discrimination against age is deeply rooted and an immense and often not recognized threshold for many human oriented initiatives for a better world for everybody. Age is a counter narrative, celebrating life, solidarity and the empowerment of all people with regard to their own health, whatever one's age. This 6th Crosstalks book is a carefully selected mix of studies, research, reflections, projects and activism uncovering ageism and exploring the opposite. Philosophy and art are brought for their capacity to provide culturally driven contexts in which to think free and to activate slumbering senses and sensibilities. Not acting one’s age, whether it is intentional or not (and, following Butler’s theory, it mostly is not on the stage of life) is both a dangerous and a promising enterprise - Aagje Swinnen In many ways, age in men often equates with the concept of 'sage;' ironic, since we all know many older men who are complete doofuses. There certainly seem to be more male role models who are reaching their older years with dignity and grace while in the public eye, compared to the number of high-ranking women in the fields of government, science, religion, education, politics … do I need to continue the list? - Ellen Snortland Ageing populations have been identified as a major problem in most Western societies. Why? As noted previously, the elderly are not particularly dangerous; they are usually not violent and hardly have any impact on criminal statistics and crime rates. - Cor Wagenaar Ageism is to age what racism is to race. Both are socially constructed ideas that have changed over time and serve a social and economic purpose. They’re not about how we look, they’re about how people in power assign meaning to how we look. - Ashton Applewhite
