October 2013: On AgingIn this issue’s focus on aging, we explore our human responses, as Friends, to the march of time, its toll on human bodies and communities, and its lessons for us. Caroline Mather Brown’s story (“The Last Few Miles”) speaks particularly to my condition, an eloquent and honest narrative of care. In “Circles of Crones”, author Bette Rainbow Hoover writes of reclaiming a slur and celebrating the wisdom and power of elder women. And in “The Friend Is Not Heard”, Louis Cox lifts up the problems faced by people with hearing loss and suggests ways that we can make our communities of worship less challenging for these Friends.
Celestial gardens dare to bloom
Suspended in a sky of sunset washed clouds
Climbing the stairway to old age
