My Days with Emma: A Soulful Path to Elderhood


"My Days with Emma: A Soulful Path to Elderhood holds the trappings of a memoir combined with the spiritual reflection of an inquiring mind, and is a moving account of a mentor relationship between a senior wise woman and a younger man contemplating aging and life.

The entry into golden years ideally involves a form of inquiry that re-assesses remaining life and choices made past, present, and future. My Days with Emma solidifies and highlights this inquiry process by following the author's journey into being an elder; reviewing the ambiguities of aging, changing relationships between men and women; and considering the promises and purposes of maturity and growth during later years.

Many books have surveyed the spiritual progression of such an effort; but, more so than most, My Days with Emma represents a unique journey not because of its subject, but because of its presentation."

Making Peace with Mystery

Once we can accept that we are on a deeply mysterious and insecure journey we can begin to step into a dynamic and creative dance between our personal wills and the power of Fate. Such a dance is aimed at yielding a destiny illuminated by both depth and meaning.

Let yourself be touched by her and she may grant you a glimpse.”
