Questions for Reflection

Below is a summary of questions that grew out of the conversations I had with my five elder women friends over the past two and a half years. Gradually, we focused our attention on aging, turning points, and love.

Readers are encouraged to use these questions or discover ones that are relevant to you and the person you are talking with.
