OBOA: Aging as Living in Time: a discussion

The picture of old age as being a time of inevitable decline is fraught with all sorts of assumptions that are deeply ingrained in our culture. In the book Natural Order, the central character Joyce Sparks exemplifies many of the conventional qualities of old age – regret, sadness, loss, denial. In the end, however, Joyce illustrates how even in old age, it is possible to learn, grow and become a better and more whole human being.
