Viewing aging through the eyes of a child
I hope that one of the benefits to having my six year old son with me during this move will be seeing the community from his perspective.
So, without further adieu, I would like to introduce you to Asa who will share some of his perspective with you in this brief video.
As you can see, Asa has a pretty “pure” perspective that is untouched by the modern stigma of aging!
Just like my last move, I will record a video every evening sharing insights on the day. I am excited to have Asa along with me, I think that his insights might be much more relevant than mine!
Take a glimpse at how the stigma of aging has impacted how many of us “older people” view growing older. This is a clip from a documentary film titled CUT BACK: facing ageism.
The entire movie can be watched on producer Patricia Sahertian’s You Tube channel. It’s very well done and I will definitely be referencing some of the segments in future posts!
