Q: Did you notice a difference in the objects that your younger subjects brought in as opposed to your older subjects?
A: Yes. There are stories that older people can tell that younger people simply cannot. There was this one 89-year-old who brought in a stuffed dog, and she was apologizing for the dog's appearance. The dog, of course, looked perfect. The point is, there's a message from this older woman that says to all of us, there are things we've been apologizing for our entire lives, that really no one cares about. A 30-year-old might not understand that yet.
