Last month, I wrote a post 3 Remarkable Gifts That Help You Flourish in Your 60s, which generated lots of feedback, both online and offline.
While many comments were affirming, there was also some pushback on what was perceived to be an overly optimistic and even simplistic view of life in our 60s.
