Three Sisters Group’s read, watch and listen holiday list

The festive holiday season is well and truly upon us.  Amongst all the hustle and bustle, planning and preparations, we hope you’re able to find time for some rest and reflection. With this in mind, we’ve put together the Three Sisters Group ‘Read, Watch and Listen List’. This is our pick of some of the books, movies, shows, and podcasts that we’ve enjoyed throughout the year, as well as some old favourites. So, whichever medium you find most relaxing, sit back, relax and enjoy one or more of these masterpieces.

And if you were wondering – they’re not all about ageing! In fact, each deals with an individual theme central to the human condition.

I’m enjoying becoming older.  Not only am I enjoying my life today I’m looking forward to the years ahead as I become even older.
