It is a January morning in County Kerry. The Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of the craggy islands below me, is
roiled with whitecaps and angry palisades of water crashing against the tiny islets in their rocky midst. The
windstorms of the last two nights have drenched the hills on which this small Irish stone cottage clings, left
them dripping with water from bare branches hours later, sent the tiny rivulet of water outside my window
rushing wildly down the mountainside to the valley below. It is an average Kerry winter day.
But not average for some. In the last two days of rocking, howling wind, five Irish fishermen and their trawler
have been reported missing at sea. This morning, they were pronounced dead, the sea too wild yet to even
attempt to recover their bodies.
Who they were, how old they were, I do not know. But one thing I do know: life and time are ghosted
creatures for us all. They belong to us—and are not ours at the same time. Some of us, like these fishermen
caught in a season’s windstorm, leave it by surprise. Most of us, like you and me, inch our way through life,
sure on the one hand that it will never end, certain on the other that it will surely be ending for us soon.
It is at moments of such quiet consciousness that it is important to come face-to-face with what it means to
age, to be older, to be old, to become an elder in society. It is important that age be no impediment to the
magnet of life in us. But life is not about breathing only. Life is about becoming more than we are, about
being all that we can be. Whatever we are doing, however old we are, wherever we fall on the social-
This is a book for those who are on the brink of “old age,” for those who have just received their first mail
message from the Association of Retired People, and knowing themselves to be young and healthy, are very
surprised by it.
