Spent a lovely weekend with five other women, celebrating one woman's upcoming nuptials. So different from when we were in our twenties and didn't have a clue as to what was really going on. There is an inner and outer strength which comes with aging--thank goodness--because physical capacity is diminishing at the same time. I wonder if anyone has this core inner strength when they are younger. I certainly didn't. It's hard to describe, but it encompasses a knowingness, a peacefulness, a calmer energy. All I can say is I'm enjoying this sixth decade much more than I thought possible.
How about you?

Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here on Monday and Tuesday. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair.
