A Golden Glow…

In days long gone I used to read everything I could get my hands on by Helen and Scott Nearing. They were formative for me in my adult years. So in touch with the soil, simplicity and life process!
Helen kept a journal of her thoughts and readings on the subjects of aging and dying in her 80’s and 90s. It is a treasure. Here is a sample.
“Psychological aging, melancholic and misanthropic, need not accompany physiological aging. There can be such a thing as successful aging. A sense of wholeness, of integrity, can be the culmination of old age. It can be a time of rich involvement, with a golden glow over the inevitable ending.”
– Helen Nearing
