Ageing Thoughtfully View details

We don’t talk much about ageing, except perhaps about wanting to avoid it! During this course we shall look at poems and short prose about ageing, and at some philosophy too. There will be opportunities to write and talk about our own experiences, and to hear about other people’s. Are we really any wiser as we get older? What’s positive about ageing? What about relationships with families and friends? How might considering ageing help to deal with? What does our culture encourage us to see ourselves? What do we assume about ageing? Lots of questions, but we'll be talking, writing and reading our way through the process.
