A retail clerk — a woman of about 65 — told me her husband died last year. “At first, it was hard,” she said. “I found myself drifting.” But she soon discovered that a lack of direction allowed her to grow in any direction. Now she sews her own clothes and cruises to Alaska and the Caribbean. “I’ve become a pickle ball fanatic,” she laughed. “Hell, I’d never even heard of pickle ball.”
