The author wanted to envision this uplifting picture not only for those who are currently at that time of life, but also for those who are relatively young. She feels the current depiction of people over 50 in the media is often disheartening. Nearly every commercial during the national news, for example, shows older people needing drugs for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, bladder or erectile dysfunction, or Alzheimer's disease, to name a few. She felt sad to think of the younger generation imagining themselves headed down that path towards such a dark future.
Advancing in years does not need to mean decreasing our good health, losing interest in learning new things, becoming useless to others, or turning weak-minded. It can be a time of vibrancy, increase service to others, and deeper spiritual wisdom. The choice is up to us.
