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.

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.
