Whatever I thought about that very nice old lady, apparently it was not true. The reason is that, as a child, I had only a vague understanding of what meant to age. Back then, it was generally thought that aging was something unpleasant. Like having gas at your son’s high school graduation ceremony.
But we understand more about the aging process now. And we are likely to learn much more as we go forward. We see more clearly that it is less important that we age than how we do it. And I see more writing on this issue than ever. HP, for example, explodes 6 myths about the process.
