Seniors now comprise nearly one quarter of Canada’s population. This startling statistic surprises many, including the seniors who find themselves within this category. Retirees are frequently ill-prepared to deal with the physical and cultural components that encompass the privilege of living a retired life. The Third Season explores the intimate truths of an aging senior woman, whose decisions and understandings have formed her present reality. Growing up in the 1950’s and becoming a wife and mother in the 1960’s, the author made decisions within the context of her time. Many of the paths she took were good ones. Some were reactionary, according to the pressure of world events and familial shifts around her. From the luxury of retirement, she grapples with how these actions led to her existing physical and emotional health. Through gentle and open thoughtfulness, she steps out of societal expectations to embrace her truths.
