Old Women


So much has been said and sung of beautiful young girls, why don't somebody wake up to the beauty of old women?

That is soooo true because you can find so much wealth of wisdom of lessons learned from the soul of old women where beauty defies time~

I've always felt that way, but I feel it in triplicate now that I am flirting dangerously with "old".

Wonderful blog! I think I need to stop by often for inspiration.

because it takes more than a superficial glance to see beauty beond the obvious.

or, as the little prince would have said, in order to see you have to look with the heart

We are in our own minds the very beautiful young women extolled, therefore can not, at least for now, extol the beauty of life & wisdom in the not so young because we simply do not understand, nor appreciate.
