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.

LPoseyLinda Summers Posey has been developing and sharing her creativity for over 40 years as a writer, jewelry designer, fine artist and intuitive painter. She is the founder of Outrageous Elders Outreach, a movement that empowers elders to live outrageous lives of adventure, love, laughter, learning and contribution – regardless of their age. A self-declared world traveler, she can’t wait to get back to traveling when the pandemic ebbs.
