23 February Reflection Quote

"The evening of life is not to be dreaded as some dread it; rather it is to be hoped for and loved for its clarity and detachment." Janet Stuart, Circular Letter: xiii.

In our culture obsessed with youth and beauty, many dread old age and death. It can be challenging to embrace our longer life expectancy as a gift.

– do you dread old age or diminishing capabilities?
– as you grow older, are you freer from attachments?
– does contemplation come more naturally as you grow older?
