Don't Call Me Old, I'm Just Awakening! Jan 12, 2003
Focusing on advice and inspiration for mid-life and beyond, Marsha Sinetar's latest book is a winner. She takes a whimsical new approach, exploring how to live a spirit-filled life through a correspondence between two lively, intellectually curious longtime friends. The two friends discuss their contrasting viewpoints: one, which should be familiar to Sinetar's fans, looks at a prayerful life, while the other friend has a more secular style. But Sinetar ultimately shows readers how they can age well, with humor and an open heart. "Don't Call Me Old" is a charming, quick read, but a book readers will want to revisit again and again.
Feel optimistic about growing old! Sep 29, 2002
This book is written in a very enjoyable format. Thru the exchange of a series of letters between 2 old friends, we connect with the woes-but ultimately the joys-of growing old. Together the 2 friends form an "encouragement team" to encourage each other to "keep on keepin' on"....always learning, always growing, staying connected.
The author reminds us that so many older adults feel useless because they have LEARNED to believe this about themselves. They believe they are powerless. But it is possible to UN-learn these unhelpful beliefs. This book is packed full of optimistic quotes and insights to urge us all to awaken to the joy and beauty of later life and to celebrate the aging process.
I don't know the publishing/literary terms to use, but when i held this book in my hands and opened it, it's one of those books that shouted "read me!" I appreciate the large type and bigger spaces between the lines.
