A Mongolian Memoir
Is it a sign of aging to give up goals and new experiences? The author of A Mongolian Memoir, Diane Height, asserts that it does not have to. Height worked as an elementary school teacher for the majority of her career in Southern California until she decided to embark on a new journey at the age of 64.
Height started teaching at an international school in Ulaanbaatar for two years in Mongolia. She wound up remaining for a very long time and discovered that she had significantly more to find out about the world — and about herself. Living in Mongolia for quite a long time made a huge difference — in how she saw herself there and when she returned home.
Height recounts her moving experiences in Mongolia as well as her reflections on significant life shifts and the ways in which they led her to a new place—both internally and externally—that she had never imagined.
She composed A Mongolian Diary to share her encounters living and showing in Mongolia at a junction in her life that some should seriously mull over the start of their third demonstration. A Mongolian Memoir is an important book for Boomers and older people who don’t want to conform to what it means to be a senior in society.
