On this page, Love of Aging is curating a collection of mini-profiles of some of the most interesting and inspiring role models we can find–people whose vibrancy and enthusiasm for life is only increasing as they age. We created a set of questions (a la Marcel Proust) designed to provide you with a glimpse into their hearts, minds, and lives.

Enjoy! And be on the lookout as we add new Glimpses to our collection.

Durga2Durga McBroom is a singer/songwriter/actress, best known for her work with Pink Floyd and her band Blue Pearl. She travels the world performing and spreading joy.

What was one of your biggest “aha” moments? When I got that people’s perceptions of me don’t define who I am.
