Background for Icon on Aging Successfully

We developed the icon for aging successfully with the thought that there was a bridge to ancient Greece and the seven pillars that held up a Greek temple. The seven pillars in our story support the edifice that represents Aging Successfully and the importance of maintaining each of the pillars. Just as failure to repair one of the seven pillars could result in reduced stability or even collapse of the Greek temple, the failure to maintain one of our pillars could destabilize the structure of Aging Successfully or even shorten our time on earth.
