Forget the myth that you'll be a sort of elder statesperson to the rest of the family. Your life will now consist of sleeping during sex instead of after it, and going to more funerals than weddings. You'll bend down to touch your toes and then forget what you went down there for. On the plus side, you can look forward to getting your own stair-lift, and can now get away with making no effort whatsoever to lose weight. And all those charities you gave to - it's payback time!

Keep fit, keep the brain going, and with a spot of good fortune you can be living a rewarding, active life into your nineties and beyond.

When Christopher Matthew was six, the poems of Milne always reassured him that other children were as naughty as he was, so on reaching sixty he decided that he should adapt Now We Are Six, for an older audience. Now We Are Sixty is often hilarious, sometimes rueful and always thought-provoking. Some verses are about realising we are not as young as we thought, while some are about the more disconcerting problems of modern life; mobile telephones on trains, anti-social behaviour, traffic jams and the internet.

A Christian Guide to the Enneagram

Who in the world am I? The Enneagram is like a mirror, reflecting dimensions of ourselves that are sometimes hard to see. In this helpful guide, spiritual director and Enneagram teacher Alice Fryling offers an introduction to each number of the Enneagram and the respective triads into which they're organized. More than just helping us discern our number, Fryling shows how knowing it can lead to transformation by revealing to us both our false and our true selves. She writes: "Knowledge of the Enneagram has led me to the grace of God. I discovered through the Enneagram that I am not just my gifts, I am not just my failures. . . . I am a person created by God, loved by God, and uniquely gifted to love others with God's merciful and gracious love. Through the Enneagram God has taught me that I am not exactly who I think I am. . . . The Enneagram itself does not make me a different person. But knowledge of the Enneagram does help me see who I truly am and offers me words to describe how I would like to be transformed by God's grace." With questions for reflection and personal meditations aimed at leading you into deeper self-awareness, Mirror for the Soul will give you new perspective on yourself and reveal how you can experience God's love more abundantly.
