Inside We Are Forever Young
With Inside We Are Forever Young Sissel Gran hits a nerve. There is a surge in the number of seniors, and more and more tend to seek their second youth when they retire: they travel the world, divorce, throw away the alarm clock, write bucket lists. At the same time their bodies get mercilessly older. Young inside. Ageing outside. How to cope with this?
The author also challenges herself: can she, by approaching the theme of aging, manage to develop a braver stance toward the unalterable; the fragility of age and the end of life? Are there unexpected joys to find in the aging process, like more freedom and openness? Can the contact with an inner aging self, represent a counterforce in the age of anti-aging?
