changing the face of aging
Susan Brooks

"We're still living with the old paradigm of age as an arch. That's the old metaphor: You're born, you peak at midlife & decline into decrepitude. A more appropriate metaphor for aging is a staircase. The upward ascension of the human spirit, bringing us into wisdom, wholeness and authenticity." ~ Jane Fonda, TedxWomen talk, "Life's Third Act," 2011

I'm with Jane!

  • Thanks for another insightful and inspiring newsletter. I appreciate how you come from your heart as well as your head. I also appreciate that you don't send me a newsletter several times a week. I read yours because I know it's full of valuable information and perspectives. Your newest topic, Changing the Face of Aging, is so important to me!

    ~ Lynn Murphy,

  • Susan I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything you wrote! You're such an excellent writer! I nominated a dear friend as a "Modern Elder"! She's someone I admire and respect so much! I love your message in this newsletter....who am I NOW!!! Such a good and important question. I'm with you...I love the correlation you made to being a baby boomer, and the fact that we are rebels, and trendsetters...and we can change the future image of aging! Woooooooooooo hoooooooooooo! I LOVE it! I have no idea what's next for me. But, I know for sure that I want to stand for this theme of changing the perception of aging!!!

    ~ Janine Finney, Co-Author of "The Flip Flop CEO" and
    "Does the Shoe Fit?"

  • This is the best newsletter, such sage advice and attitude coming when it's been so dark for everyone. Thank you for taking a forklift of inspiration and lifting us up!
