The epigraph to my book, which willl be published on March 15th, is a quote from the wonderful writer Anne Lamott: "We contain all the ages we have ever been." It's an elegant counterpoint to the conventional narrative of aging as loss—aging as a rich process of accretion—and it also connects the generations. The quote inspired the cover drawing by brilliant designer Rebeca Mendez,
"Thank you again for your terrific keynote yesterday. I heard from so many attendees that it affected them deeply. You are wise, funny, and provocative – a great combination!"
