Marilyn Kirschner, 74: Aesthete and Fashion Maven

Marilyn, at 74, is entirely unapologetic for her age, having never had any cosmetic adjustments, not even Botox. But she is not some wallflower looking for invisibility. An aesthete is defined as a person who has a sensitivity towards beauty. If there was a personification of an aesthete it...

Chip Conley, 63: Midlife Chrysalis

This week, we check in with my friend, my teacher, and my fellow traveler, Chip Conley. It was almost 8 years ago when Chip, who at the time was head of Global Hospitality and Strategy at Airbnb, reached out as he was in the process of writing Wisdom at...

Tina Frey, 55: Master Meditator

Tina is a remarkable person — to be with her is to be around someone seemingly connected to something beyond what most of us know. In all my years, I have met a handful of people who are in touch with what, for lack of a better word, would...

Don Hatton, 65: Perseverance

Age is not a deterrent. Don has been holding the dream of racing in the famous Dakar Rally for over 40 years.  It has often been said: just don’t quit. If one quits, that is when it ends; not quitting can lead to all manner of unexpected challenges, and new roads....

Dispatch from Honolulu 2023 AGEIST Edition: Where to Stay & What to Do

I have been coming to Hawaii almost yearly for over 25 years; of all the places I have ever been, this is my go-to vacation destination. In the early days, when I was a discontented Manhattanite, it was all about Kauai for the quiet, the remoteness, and the sheer...

Benoit Malphettes, 77: Freedom

Approaching 80, and freed from the bounds of commercial and fashion photography, Benoit is soaring in new visual adventures, fully realizing the magic of his childhood dream: taking pictures just for the art of it. His journey is a shining example that art has no age; neither does determination...

Patricia Garcia-Gomez, 57: Stamina for All of Life’s Challenges

Can anyone imagine ocean swimming every morning, all year, even if the ocean one swims in can get to 30 degrees and the air to 18 degrees, and then enjoy it? Enjoy it so much that it becomes the organizing event of the day, and then to initiate others...
