Cherishing our Elders

tree in winter

Elders are the lore-carriers, the wisdom-keepers. They ensure the continuity of any culture or community. Yet their health and strength can wane;  they can become weary or discouraged. If they withdraw or depart, we are all diminished. How can we support and cherish them, so we may long benefit from their experience? How can we best nurture the elders of tomorrow?

     1. Why do they go?
     2. How and where do they go?
     3. Planning for Succession
     Appendix: Continuity Books

May these words, and the manner of their sharing, bring good to many, harm to none,
and glory to the Ancient Gods!
