Description


Francine Toder, Ph.D. retired from the faculty at California State University, Sacramento (2000) and then recently retired from private practice as a clinical psychologist. Her new book, The Vintage Years: Finding Your Inner Artist (Writer, Musician, Visual Artist) After Sixty, began to take shape after she thought about retirement and meaningful ways to spend her new-found time, and positive aging in general. She rented a cello, found a teacher and began learning to play this life-size instrument, which she now practices daily - proof that it's never to late to learn, but more importantly that the fine arts may be the best way to stimulate brain growth and enhance health past sixty, according to recent neuroscience research. This book is not a memoir but based on neuroscience research and interviews with late-blooming artists of all kinds.
