“Old people can be interesting, jovial, lovable, active, wise, witty, and holy, if only we could cast aside the prejudices of our culture and our own negative attitudes toward aging,” says the author. This CareNote will help readers face and overcome much of the negatives of growing older?with the help of good humor. “The key to cashing in on this,” reminds the author, “is to step back from life once in a while and take a fresh look at it. We will see that life is serious, yes, but it’s also humorous in so many ways. If we can create attitudes and beliefs that enable us to look beyond the sometimes uncomfortable present situation with optimism, we’re surely sailing more smoothly to the promised land.” Here is real help for the challenging journey through life’s later years.
