Love and Aging

WBUR in Boston has a great radio show called On Point, and on November 30, 2007, Jane Clayson filling in for the usual host, Tom Ashbrook, had a great show on Love And Aging which is well worth listening to. It lasts about 45 or 50 minutes. Here is a brief synopsis from the On Point web page:

They say love changes everything. But time changes love.

Just how much it can change became front page news last week, when the family of retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor revealed that her husband had fallen in love with a fellow Alzheimer's patient.

And she was happy for him.

What happens to the part of ourselves that loves as the mind ages, and changes?

Our culture celebrates young love. But mature love is filled with passion too, even as our memories leave us. Seniors living for the moment - not the past.

This hour On Point: how we love when we grow old.
