In this brief, poetic book, philosopher John Sullivan suggests how we might re-envision the second half of life as a time of new possibilities for receiving, releasing, and remembering who we truly are at our deepest level. Sullivan looks at how we may rethink retirement so as to receive: Springs gifts of living in beginners mind, Summers gifts of cultivating care for the community of all our kin, Autumns gifts of releasing from all that hinders us still, and Winters gifts of deep listening and alignment with more subtle currents already at work in our world. The book is gentle and compassionate, practical and persuasive, lyrical and life-enhancing. I will be buying a lot of copies of this book, and I hope that it spreads far and wide, to help all of us understand the simple lessons of aging with arms stretched wide in welcome. Sarah Susanka, author of The Not So Big Life
