Growing Bolder.

COMMENT | 8 comments
On the new site Bolder, Helen Cathcart and Dominique Afacan share words of wisdom on "how to grow older" from inspiring figures over 70 (a demographic thus far missing from Non-Career Advice).

Interviewees include British photographer Terry O'Neill, record-setting helicopter pilot Jennifer Murray (who only became licensed in her mid-50s), and painter Tess Jaray, who confirms that a certain (healthy) creative doubt is ageless: "One of the problems with being an artist is that you never really know if you've cracked it, so you have to keep on going because it's always the next one that's going to be perfect. My idea of happiness is completing a painting that for five minutes I think I've got right."

See more at Bolder, here. Thanks to It's Nice That for the introduction.


  1. Amazing! I design a magazine for seniors and am always looking for fresh content... this hits the spot. As always, glad for your posts, Shoko.


  2. i expect older folks to be wise but i love your series because it's also important to pay attention to the wisdom of the (relatively) young.

  3. Thanks so much for reading, Elle!

    Paw, that's very sweet, thank you :)

  4. Lovely. Getting older kind of terrifies me, but seeing people do it with such grace and wisdom is inspiring.

  5. This is both so inspiring and comforting :-) Thank you.

  6. five minutes, that's reassuring because I myself tend to be my harshest critic, it's good to know I'm not alone :)

  7. Brianna, well said. I agree. And Fee — yes!
