A Delightful Little Book on Aging book cover

All around us, older women flourish in industry, entertainment, and politics. Do they know something that we don’t, or are we all just trying to figure it out? For so many of us, our hearts and minds still feel that we are twenty-something young women who can take on the world. But in our bodies, the flexibility and strength that were once taken for granted are far from how we remember them. Every day we have to rise above the creaky joints and achy knees to earn the opportunity of moving through the world with a modicum of grace.

Yet we do rise, because it’s a privilege to grow old, and every single day is a gift. Peter Pan’s mantra was, “Never grow up”; our collective mantra should be, “Never stop growing.” This collection of user-friendly stories, essays, and philosophies invites readers to celebrate whatever age they are with a sense of joy and purpose and with a spirit of gratitude.

Banner with colorful tree on left and hardcover book on right, with this in center: "Wonder and delight for life, this is what wisdom is." Start reading A Delightful Little Book on Aging.

PRAISE for A Delightful Little Book on Aging:
“Where are the elders? The wise women, the crones, the guardians of truth here to gently, lovingly, and playfully guide us towards the fulfillment of our collective destiny? It turns out that they are right here, in our midst, and Stephanie Raffelock is showcasing the reclamation of aging as a moment of becoming, no longer a dreaded withering into insignificance. A Delightful Little Book on Aging lays down new and beautiful tracks for the journey into our richest, deepest, and wildest years.”
Kelly Brogan, MD, author of the New York Times bestseller A Mind of Your Own
“A helpful, uplifting work for readers handling the challenges of growing older.”

  1. Hi Clueless Gent — I think you’re more “gent” than clueless. It does remind me though, of that old Bob Dylan song, where he sings:
    “I was so much older then, I younger than that now.” I think that part of our wholeness is the gift of humility that helps us to understand that part of youth is thinking you’ve got it all wired. And part of older age, is realizing that you don’t, and you never did. That makes me smile.

    Thanks for hosting me on your site today as I continue along my wonderful book blog tour. It’s really been fun checking out all of the different websites that have welcomed me. And I am happy to be here with you today. Big hugs and all goodwill!
