Conversations About Aging: Paul Quinn, 80

Paul Quinn, Conversations About Aging

Imagine living most of your life on an island off the coast of Maine. That’s what Paul Quinn has done and he has lots of stories to share. Like about the time he came home to find a lobster boat (not his) half in his garage and half out in the driveway. Listen to our conversation to get that story and more.

Conversations About Aging: Joy Hare, 75

Joy at home

Joy Hare tries to live up to her name in all aspects of her life. You can’t make it to 75 without experiencing some heartache, and she has. But she is always seeking joy, which is reflected in the poetry she writes, the art she produces, the work she does, and the adventures she takes. She reflects on all of that in the latest episode of my special series Conversations About Aging.

Conversations About Aging: Peesh, 76

Peesh

One of the issues that often comes up as we are living longer is figuring out the best place to live. Most people want to stay put in their own homes. That’s what Peesh and her husband Paul want, only they have different ideas about where in Maine their home should be. One thing they agree on is that it’s important to live your life fully and not put things off. My conversation was mostly with Peesh, but Paul joined us toward the end.
