    Here are some thoughts about growing older from a recent conversation on this topic.

    Growing older is difficult because of:

    1. Losses: physical, mental, emotional, and loss of friends. Loss of function. Loss of memory.

    2.Feeling invisible and marginalized. Isolation. Not as relevant.

    3. Financial difficulties.

    4. Living longer and being sick or incapacitated.

    5. Uncertainty, impermanence, feelings of loss of control.

    6. Death

    7. How do we satisfy our craving for safety and certainty as we age?
