Brett Goldman.


The award winning film and non-fiction book Nomadland raise serious questions about financial stability, physical and mental fortitude, and aging. At first glance, the story appears to be an indictment of the way the United States cares for its senior citizens, along with corporations that seem to take advantage of them. But closer inspection clouds this picture. How are they hurting themselves and others with their choices? Are we as UU’s capable of shedding idealism to be clear-eyed about the struggles of others? And what nomadic aspects of our own lives are worthy of additional self-reflection?
