Some Notes You Hold is about surviving what life throws at us as we age. The so-called "golden years" are so named because of the high admission price--the tremendous losses, disappointments, illnesses, and failures we all experience if we live long enough. The first part of the book, called "Letting Go," focuses on surviving deep grief. The middle section is a musical interlude, exploring the tremendous power of music to heal us mentally, physically, and spiritually and to reorder our thinking and our emotions. The last section, "Holding On," explores the roads leading to survival: prayer and meditation, communion with the natural world, and writing. The price paid for those "golden years" leads to the prize: insight, joy, and a kind of peace we were incapable of when we were young.
