I detest the notion that crones are ugly wart faced women. Crones share wisdom, their patient love and are mentors to all they meet. They seek the old ways while living in today's world. They do not shun or embrass.
As a woman gathers more years, she becomes more bold, which is not the same as brave: Brave is jumping in. Bold is jumping in led by angels. In age, we learn to know the difference. For certain, ‘older is bolder…’ - Clarissa Pinkola Estes
