Aging Artfully explores a connection between longevity and creative expression in a tribute to twelve highly individual women of the San Francisco Bay Area, ages 85 to 105. These vibrant women of varied backgrounds talk to the author, Amy Gorman, about their lives and their passion to express their unique gifts in painting, music, dance, storytelling, rug-making, and Ikebana. Gorman¿s collaborator on the project, Frances Kandl, has written seven songs based on the lives of some of these women a CD of these songs is included with the book, which also contains many photographs. The stories of these women, largely told in their own words, present the reader with hard-earned wisdom about overcoming adversity and grief, and provide powerful models of the possibilities of a productive and satisfying old age. Amy Gorman has given a great gift to these women and to the world by spotlighting their inspiring lives. Aging Artfully is a book to enhance the lives of readers of all ages.
