Crone's Corner

 

I have been trying to think what to put here instead of just a pretty photograph.

Re: my new definition of what a 'crone' is, which to me are the wonderful women that are like fine aged wine, having had so many life experiences, some wonderful, but sometimes also very challenging life experiences.

We are not perfect, any of us, sometimes we are even frustrated with the world, with our lives, with ourselves! We all want so badly for peace in our lives, for happiness for our families, for love, for there to be no pain, no hurt anywhere in the world.

There are passages in all our lives, struggles we have to work through, lessons that might contribute towards our growth, or some we have to repeat, seemingly endlessly until we understand the lesson.

 

Passages

In the valley of forgotten dreams
lying dormant in our souls,
there are hidden
 oasis' of knowledge,
love, forbidden desire,
and unfulfilled fantasies
which come unbidden, to
tantalize our memories.

Passages of life flow by,
changing and re-arranging
our patterns..
sometimes swiftly, but
othertimes slowly,
so slow we lose patience
in the process, and
make hasty decisions
which incriminate us.

Cathargic experiences
leave us weak..
unwilling
 to confront ourselves,
afraid to take steps
in new directions.

Life, however calls to us,
whispering our names,
in a breeze,
singing with the brook,
in wind-blown kisses,
touching our lives..
turning keys in
unexpected doors.

Enlightenment comes
with the awareness of choice
and the paths upon which
our choices take us.

Whether we go willingly
increases or negates
the struggle in our lives,
and in personal endeavors,
widening the way,
to more expansion..
or constriction,
then ever before.

And life tarries not,
for the last curtain call,
but is
waiting in the wings
and stretches its' arms
and embraces us.

~Senior Sweetheart pagent

OK, I just discovered the Ms Senior Sweetheart Pagents, watched a documentary on Netflix last night and just loved it. These women are so inspirational, it makes you feel like aging is not a death sentence in which you are just waiting around waiting to leave.

Please check out the documentary and also their website which tells about the pagent, the staff, the programs and the reason behind it.
