My 85 year old father and his peers gather monthly for a “men’s lunch.” Some have known one another since their youth, some are newer to their circle of friendship. In the West old age is isolating, and it warms me to see those elders embrace and maintain their friendship and community bonds. The men in this picture look so easy, so relaxed, so happy in their companions’ presence. Not at all isolated. Just beautiful. .
