Dr. Al Power guest blogs on Fridays here at ChangingAging.org.
Musician, Physician and all around great guy, he dropped me a note concerning quotes from women about aging.
One comment comes to mind. I recently facilitated a Management Team Retreat for St. John’s and we had an hour when we were addressed by elders from St. John’s Meadows. One of the elders, Margaret Thirtle, is 92 and worked for many years for the Sibley’s Corporation. During that time, she oversaw the visits of almost 200 celebrities to Rochester. Margaret told us that one such celeb, Gloria Swanson, “gave me some advice I’ll never forget: She said, ‘After 40, my dear, always sit with your back to the light!'”
