While driving around today, I listened to CBC radio, 740 AM dial, as I usually do in the car when by myself. I enjoyed this episode on mid-life quite a bit. Rarely, does this subject get treated in a thoughtful manner although it is a rather jarring time of life, often Job-like, as the psychiatrist mentions.
The first comment on the website regarding the show asks: "What about women?" It is a good question. The program did not deal with women, at all. But we can't have everything at once. This was a good episode. Perhaps, we can have another on women.
Having Christian faith would, of course, add a completely different dimension to this, yet. I would not want to go through this without prayer and song, faith and faith community.
