Aging Gracefully and Other Big Fat Lies

(How to Turn Getting Older into Getting Better)

“Age is an issue of mind over matter,” Mark Twain said. “If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” Makes a nice wall plaque, but when we live in a time—and a society—that values youth and beauty above things like wisdom, kindness, compassion and experience, how do we learn to love (or at least make peace with) our ailing, failing bodies and ever-growing jowls? This lively and informative chat will convince even the most skeptical of audiences that getting older isn’t so bad—especially when you consider the alternative. (Warning: You may leave this chat with more laugh lines than you came with.)
