Beach Retreat by Betty Breuer


Moving down the street

Walkers and our feet,

Who needs a car

Walking's best by far

Slower and slower we go

Sharing the walk with Joe.

It's such a relief

Resting at the beach.

That's our seat -

A beach retreat.

The Pelicans by Laura Olsher

The Pelicans.

 

I sit in an upholstered chair bequeathed to us residents on the tenth floor of the Ocean House where I live. I watch them. The Pelicans. Their black slim bodies and blacker wide spread wings drift through the iridescent afterglow of the sunset. It back lights them in blue, red-orange, gray-green, yellow, gold. They hover in the twilight sky. They are waiting for something.

 

The Pelicans.

They fly past my window, their regal wings parting…

The Sunset for Florence by Laura Olsher

I am living at a recovery hotel. It brushes toenails with the sea.

 

The sun setting into the sea making ever changing multi-colored cloud shapes appear and disappear is my Higher Power.

 

This is how:

 

I become a part of the panoramic view each and every night.

 

The diaphanous clouds present themselves as sheep, lambs, lions, small auto cars, all colors, every hue of orange and red, redder, redder, pale blue-green aqua blue, dark blue,…

About ALAA

What is ALAA?

What if we could transform the conversation on aging throughout the world?

The answer is that we can – and in a very significant way.

The idea is really simple, but profound: have older folks document their own experience of aging, in photography, videos, writing and interviews. In all the extensive literature on aging, no one has ever asked older people, in such an extensive and organized way, to document their own experience of it.

This project began at two assisted living communities in Santa Monica, California. Participants were provided cameras and digital recorders, and given training and support in documenting their lives. This resulted in two large and well-attended photo shows, and the project has since gone worldwide.

In the contributions of you or your loved ones to Age Looks at Aging we will transform the conversation about aging, adding – at long last – the voices of those who are most knowledgeable and affected by it. In doing this, a dialogue has been created between people of all ages.

Many seniors who now live in independent and assisted living communities, as well as nursing homes, used to be the elders of the tribe. They were the people we went to for counsel. Through economic and social shifts in our society, family and community, to a great extent has been lost. ALAA is recreating community to bring our elders back to their rightful place at the head of the table. They need to speak, and we need to hear them.
