Synopsis: What do a couple of women in their early 80's do after their careers are long over, the grandchildren are grown, and baking cookies or knitting sweaters holds no appeal? They take Pilates and meditation classes on a mountain-top in Utah, of course - and write a book. They write about what it's like to have young, vibrant brains living inside bodies whose knees, hips and other assorted parts are falling apart. They describe how difficult it is to watch your circle of friends and loved ones shrink. And then they describe coping strategies for dealing with all of that. Much of their advice is based on diligent research into current studies on aging. The rest is based on hard-won lessons from their own mistakes. With a mixture of humor and sadness, they offer a front row view of the aging process that will comfort and encourage their fellow senior citizens, and provide useful insights to those who care for them.

About the Author: Alia Sayegh and Lois Wallen were both born and still live at the southern New Jersey shore near Atlantic City. Their friendship spans over 75 years. But they have both traveled many miles in different directions over that time period. Following her undergraduate studies at New York University, Alia traveled abroad and worked four years in an Israeli kibbutz. She returned to the U.S. and worked in the Atlantic City School District for 34 years, first as French teacher, then as Supervisor of Fine and Industrial Arts and finally as District Supervisor of Foreign Languages and English as a Second Language. During those years, Alia earned a Masters in Education and Doctorate in Romance Languages at the University of Pennsylvania. Lois Wallen earned her business degree from Temple University, which she put to use as office manager and bookkeeper for her husband’s law practice. In addition to running the practice and raising two children, she trained as a docent at the Noyes Museum of Art in Oceanville, NJ, where she still enjoys taking tour groups through the galleries.
