On this page, Love of Aging is curating a collection of mini-profiles of some of the most interesting and inspiring role models we can find–people whose vibrancy and enthusiasm for life is only increasing as they age. We created a set of questions (a la Marcel Proust) designed to provide you with a glimpse into their hearts, minds, and lives.

Enjoy! And be on the lookout as we add new Glimpses to our collection.
