I am thinking about this question lately and wondering what is my part now that I am "older"?
I have only just begun to think of myself as
In my minds eye I am still about 28 years old!
My bathroom mirror tells a different story (Lol!) that is compelling me to stop for a moment and recognize where I am... and who I am becoming.
I love old things, and always have. I adore all things vintage, and above are just a few items I picked up recently on a little antique market. I appreciate the passage of time that these items show.
Could I see the same value in the wrinkles around my eyes and mouth? One cannot buy the effects that time takes on books, fabric and paintings. Seeing beautiful crazing on an old tea cup, or the yellowing of a books pages, creates a appreciation within me for these items and their previous owners.
Could I truly appreciate the effects that time have created in my physical form?
As my mindset shifts with this new stage of life, I am questioning what is truly important to me, what is my deepest wish that I have yet to grant myself, and what place do I have in my world now? Even something as everyday as what clothes to wear bring up new questions for me. So when my friend Sieglinde shared this Youtube link with me about the Artful ladies of NYC, I was thrilled to watch and hear what they had to share about the experience of getting older. Thank you so much Sieglinde!
