    I really found that playing into my 40s uplifted a lot of people. You don’t know how many times I would walk on the streets and people would say, ‘Keep doing what you’re doing.’

  11. Whenever I talk about our policy prescriptions," says Rodney Harrell, a senior policy adviser for housing with the AARP Public Policy Institute, "I say, ‘we’re going to help you do now what you’re going to be forced to do then.’ Because you’re not going to be able to hide when you’ve got 20-plus percent of your population over 65. That’s a huge portion of the population that’s going to come.

    It is much more of a drama for women, the business of aging. No one wants to age, and I really think we should find a solution. Especially because we live so much longer. It used to be that a woman would have only one life, one husband, and if you were bored that was that. Now, you can have two or three lives. So even the concept of family is changing. I think this question of aging will define the society of the future.

  17. When you consider we’re called trailer trash, it’s a joke,” says Louise. “I have very wealthy people here. They think it’s the coolest thing there is.” Lunches at the clubhouse are priced at $5 so that those who would never ask for help can bring home leftovers, those who are better off can put a little extra in the jar. One resident likens the diverse incomes and classes in the park to the old canard about nudist camps—everybody’s naked so you can’t see the differences. “In here we’re all equal. Some can hardly afford food. It’s all over the playing field. There’s no tension because some of the trailers are run-down. Who cares? It’s their home.
    — from Pacific Coast Mag’s long, fascinating piece on the state of trailer parks & senior housing in America.

    There’s no airbrushing of wrinkles, no concealing of age spots, no well-intentioned soft focus to knock a few years off. This has been their most successful campaign to date.
