When I decided to launch Conversations About Aging, I contacted lots of people and organizations for recommendations on individuals I might interview. One of them was Jess Maurer, Executive Director of the Maine Council on Aging. One of her recommendations was Shirley Weaver. “In her 80s, a force to be reckoned with — a must interview!” I took her advice. Listen to my conversation about aging with Shirley Weaver, 82. She IS a force to be reckoned with.
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.
