Stopping Place in Life

The Water Bridge

“Of any stopping place in life, it is good to ask whether it will be a good place from which to go on as well as a good place to remain.”
Mary Catherine Bateson

Mary Catherine Bateson is a writer and cultural anthropologist. I just picked up her book, “Composing a Further Life,” which approaches the aging process with profound awareness that a second adulthood is waiting for us to explore with fresh abandonment.
