My favourite cliché and a convenient one for the start of this decade is “Hindsight is 20/20” because it distills so many truisms about aging while telling us to look clear-eyed at our life lessons and apply them to the future. This was the jumping-off point for “Your Health: Vision 20/20” (page 50), as we take a look at the leading Canadian science and medical breakthroughs of the last decade and how they will transform how we age for the better in the next. In this, technology is our friend, and this future vision, which is infused by it, applies to our finances (“New Money,” page 34) and the magical but documented impact of music on our body, mind and spirit (“Good Vibrations,” page 58). Naturally, this leads me to the…

THE BOSS Robert J. Wiersema hit the nail on the head [“The Long Road,” January/February 2020]. I have been a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen since 1979. I’m 72 years old and I’ve seen 31 of his shows, my last being the premiere of Western Stars at TIFF. Like Robert, I’m looking foward to his next live concert, and hopefully it will happen in 2020. I don’t agree with Robert stating that Western Stars is the darkest album since Nebraska. I think it’s quite contrary and I see it as rather uplifting. Great article though. See you further on up the road. —Joe Ragonese, via email. USER-FRIENDLY I think your November-December issue is one of your better issues as it covers a number of topics that are important to us seniors. I think you did a great service…

you say goodbye and i say hello

We’ve long romanticised the fairy-tale ideal of a prince and a fair maiden – this one self-made and a feminist – falling in love and living happily ever after. But when the scenario becomes real and the pair attempts to escape the weight of palace pomp and politics – with a part-time move to Canada, no less – the fairy tale turns, ahem, grim. As royal observers and viewers of The Crown know, the British Royal Family doesn’t do well with change, which is why Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to step away as full-time senior royals to carve their own path (though while promising to support the Queen and Commonwealth) caused such sturm und drang. But succession is secure: Harry is sixth in line to the throne and, given…

(AND DOWN) Heroism knows no age A number of firefighters in their 60s and 70s are on the front lines helping to battle the raging Australian bushfires. In news that could hold promise for humans, American scientists reverse the deterioration of heart muscles in middle-aged flies, extending their lifespans And yet the cure for a whack from the common fly swatter remains tragically elusive. And for those who don’t have access to the same life-extending technology as middle-aged flies … Famed Canadian scientist and broadcaster David Suzuki, 83, says, “You’re never too young – or too old – to start the process of extending your health span” in the CBC documentary Aging Well Suzuki Style, which explores various questions about how we age. An intruder broke into a house in Rochester, N.Y., only to…

THE YEAR 2020 is shaping up to be a big one for Jann Arden, starting with her hit sitcom Jann – Canada’s most watched home-grown TV comedy in 2019 – which returns for a second season. As well, the 57-year-old becomes the 57th inductee into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the Juno Awards in March, during which she’ll also perform. Ahead of that milestone, however, the eight-time Juno winner mines her archives to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her hit 2000 album Blood Red Cherry – a deluxe edition re-release that includes previously unreleased songs, demo tracks and liner notes.
