If you want to understand more about sage-ing, go to the movie Young at Heart. It is a documentary about a singing group of about 30 people where the average age is around 80! They are from Massachusetts and they practice so that they can tour. The movie follows them as they live life.
I went because I am "into" saging (as those of you who read my blog know by now), but I took my 22 year old son. Before we went, I was worried that he might not like it so I warned him it was about "older people." He said that he did not care and that he would go with me anyway.
About halfway in the movie, I leaned over and asked him if he liked it. He said, "Yes, very much." In the car going home, I asked him why he liked it and I thought his comments were poignant. "It was inspiring to see older people really enjoying life. They were happy and positive. I liked their attitude. It makes me realize it is possible. The scene in the prison was moving."
My mission is to help people get on the journey to elderhood sooner rather than later. We need to respect our elders and elders need to aspire to be respected. There is so much we can learn from each other. If we are fortunate, aging is inevitable. We need to not let this youth oriented culture get us down. We need to celebrate our life experiences just as they do in Young at Heart!
