My mum died when she was just 49 – she’d had breast cancer and she’d first been diagnosed with it just over five years earlier. We spent a lot of time talking about living, about being ill, about dying – particularly after she knew that she was terminally ill. It goes without saying that it made a profound impression on me, so much so that it took me a long time, a very long time to come to terms with the enormity of ageing, and of our eventual death.

But this is not a sad episode. In this podcast I talk about how I came to understand that life is worth living, and how I accepted the unquestionable beauty of being older.
