  • Definition of an ElderBarry BarkinThe Live Oak Project, El Sobrante, CA

    An elder is a person who is still growing, still a learner,still with potential, and whose life continues to have within it promise for and connection to the future.

    An elder is still in pursuit of happiness, joy and pleasure,and her or his birthright to these remains intact.

    Moreover, an elder is a person who deserves respect and honor, and whose work it is to synthesize wisdom from long life experience and formulate this into a legacy for future generations.
