    It’s one of those prodigal son returns tales. In this case, his name is Jean and he’s returning to the family vineyard in Burgundy after ten years away in Chile and Australia. Back at the farm, Jean’s brother and sister, Jeremie and Juliette and a seriously ill father await.

    The film is about the rifts that often come between generations, about the importance of family, and about the need for forgiving. ...

This is especially true after decades of success as a professional in another, most likely unrelated field. We’d become accustomed to being respected, maybe admired, surely rewarded, for our brains and abilities. Now what? Back to Square One?

    Learning a new language, for example, as an older adult requires immense humility, I’ve found. The old ego wants to turn away from this seemingly gargantuan challenge in a huff. Who wants to appear foolish in a social setting by making a verbal mess of things? The prospect of being laughed at at this stage of life is too much to take.

    In the nearly eight years I’ve lived here in lovely San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, I’ve met a few people who came to retire and expected to become fluent in Spanish in no time. When this didn’t happen within a couple of years, despite their sincere and steady efforts with Spanish text books, classes, and private tutors, these older, former professionals became discouraged and returned to the States. ...

And there was this Cab priced at $229 a bottle, which is about $100 less than what I’m used to paying for the cheapest California Cabernet Sauvignons and about $200 less than any California Cabs with that magic word “Napa” on the label.

    To me, being outside, beneath that cobalt sky, among the tall swaying trees, surrounded by Nature’s sounds and colors, is pure freedom. Being “outside the box” – the boxy, confining, and sometimes suffocating walls of houses, classrooms, shops, and offices – is, for me, pure bliss. Lately I’ve been wondering: How did I get like this?

    Perhaps it’s true that we experience a second childhood in our older age, especially when retirement provides us with child-like freedoms. Suddenly, it seems, we have time to play again. I can still hear my young mother’s voice clearly in my mind: “Out, out!” she’d gaily say, “go outside and play, kids! Look! God gave you a sunny day! It’s a sin to waste good weather!” ...

Just ask my stomach. It still thinks the bitchin’ hour, the time to start cussing and complaining that it’s had no visitors since that last cup of coffee is high noon.

    My stomach was at it again a few weeks ago. It had only been back here in San Miguel de Allende for two days but, in its other home, Toronto, it’s used to Asian delights every other day. And promptly at twelve.

    That presented a problem. The Asian restaurants that we wanted to go to, the ones with the right amount of class as well as the right cuisine, cater to Mexican stomachs and don’t unlock their doors until 1:00 pm.

    “You know which one you’re forgetting”, said Don Day’s Wife. “You’re forgetting one of your favorite restaurants. Not exactly Asian. But with some great Asian dishes and lots of Asian influences. And they open at noon.” ...

He had, according to my recollection of what she told me then, a deep, soothing voice, an impressive British accent, and a gift for listening and commiserating.

    He, too, had lovingly cared for his spouse while she was dying of breast cancer, he told my sister; so he knew what she had just gone through in caring for her husband. In his daily phone calls to her, he tried to lift her spirits. He kindled dreams of travel to faraway places – in his private jet, of course. He sprinkled his conversation with British terms of endearment: “Yes, my love. … You’re so right, my love…” He posed as wealthy and worldly.

    In giddy, school-girlish tones, my otherwise smart-cookie sister, who wasn’t born yesterday (for the record, she arrived in this world two summers after I did), told me about this prince of a guy and how happy he was making her at this low point in her life.

    I’m being a bit jokey here, but I do think there’s a valid case to be made for making this effort, especially as time and stress pull our faces down like heavy drapery.

    Mexicans, I’ve observed in the years I’ve lived here in Mexico, are quick to smile genuine smiles. If you study the old folks’ weather-worn faces, you see deeply carved wrinkles by their eyes. When you pass Mexicans of any age on the sidewalk and you make eye contact, you’re sure to exchange smiles. These are guileless smiles, a-sincere-recognition-of-our-shared-humanity smiles. The kind of smile that brightens your day. ...
