Orange County News, Nov. 15, 2006 http://www.theorangecountynews.com/news/2006/1115/Viewpoints/010.html By Tia McCurdy If you don't have an elder in your life, it's easy not to pay attention to this segment of the population. My Mom is a focus in my life but - as an aging baby boomer - I'm also paying very close attention to this business of aging, looking down the road and wondering what life will be like. I have the pleasure of being around seniors in my work, and what's clear to me is that the older I get the younger old looks. I can clearly see that I have much to learn about growing older with humor, grace and a robust portion of gratitude.
