From when we’re born until we die, everyone ages. But, after the advent of the youth-driven Baby Boomer era, getting older (remember Hope I Die Before I Get Old and Don’t Trust Anyone Over 30) was considered a bad thing. Now Baby Boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) are the ones getting – dare we say it – old. And just like they have done at every stage of their lives, Boomers are reinventing and redefining what it means to age.
Today, 65 might not be the new 35, but it certainly isn’t our grandmothers’ 65.
In an ongoing collection of articles I’ve written for Booming Encore, I’ve culled good ideas about getting older in the 21st Century from some of the best known boomer icons like Jane Fonda and from some lesser-known, but equally important thinkers on the issue like Mortimer Adler, the author of War of the Roses.
