A myriad of fires light the night
  From our camp on the river bank.
  The shrieking snowstorm breaks my dream
  Of my peaceful, tranquil home.

That was a nice essay. I do find the witness of graceful aging to be so much more beautiful than its opposite: the raging against time's effects via artificial means. I find that particularly sad and somewhat pathetic. I say this with all the passionate conviction of a 41 year old who isn't yet tempted by the lure of plastic surgery... I hope I can grow old with the grace of the woman you describe, of the grandmothers and great grandmothers from my past...

Hindsight is 20/20. Lovely post.

The thin skin of elders means less space between the outside world and the soul. Wisdome comes with age. imo.

I love getting older (and wiser hahaha).

Pushin' 50 MotherPie cheers.

THAT is a remarkable post.

It is so true the saying: "If I knew then, what I know now".

Wouldn't we all be just a little bit better off?

What a thoughtful and evocative post. I wish that we could come to this realization a bit earlier in life.

What a lovely post. Beauty really isn't nothing compared to living life and enjoy every day of it.

Great post, Tina! You can't go back and relate to that same woman, but you can do so with the next one you meet. You might even decide to visit a nursing home and seek her out. :)

Your post made me take a deep breath and be still in the moment - Thank you!

Oh how absolutely lovely!

I too used to go to nursing homes when I was younger. I was part of PFLA (pet foundation for love and affection) We would bring our pets in to see the elderly and give them smiles. I thought those same things as you did too as a younger naive person. You may not be able to go back and see that same woman, but there are other woman there that would love to have some company and conversation and compassion from someone like you. :)
