The older woman can remain an adventurous risk-taker even after a loss of function. Dialogue is possible with the rock she no longer can move, the hole she no longer can dig, and the mountain she no longer can climb. Too Personal for Words documents the shock waves of inevitable change which confront elders. Unacceptable alternatives and obnoxious realities of the aging process are tempered by humor, youthful spontaneity, joy, and delight in small things.
