Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (pages 185-196).
Formatted Contents Note: With gratitude -- Prelude -- The view from the brink: what I can see from here -- Young and old: the dance of the generations -- Getting real: from illusion to reality -- Work and vocation: writing a life -- Keep reaching out: staying engaged with the world -- Keep reaching in: staying engaged with your soul -- Over the edge: where we go when we die -- Postlude.
Summary, etc.: "An exploration of Parker Palmer's experience of living and aging, written in hopes of encouraging readers of every age to explore their life course. It is not a 'guide to' or 'handbook' for 'getting old'--something all of us are doing all the time. Instead it's a set of meditations in prose and poetry that turn the prism on the meaning(s) of one's life--and on the importance of staying meaningfully engaged with life until the end. From beginning to end the book is packed with both humor and gravitas"--
