About this title


The crocus flower/bulb has special meaning for the design cover. It was selected because it is symbolic of the act of lifting the Senior Spirit from the emotional dark, cold, winter season of an older adult's mundane and dull life to give birth to change and the springtime of a new way of life. These beautiful blossoms breaking through the snow and ice represent the inner struggle that one encounters to bloom where they are planted. What is happening to them is not mere happenstance; something larger than them are at work within them. Someone wiser than they are has a word to speak and that word is "Yes" to God's will and His way in their new life. It is also a reminder of the death and resurrection of Jesus from the dark tomb to the newness of life. Jesus rose that we may have life and that we may have it more abundantly. So it is with Older Adults, they rise to a better quality of life and at the same time preserve their dignity.
