The Advantages of Aging

"The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been." Madeleine L'Engle

It's true that we accumulate decades like charms on a bracelet and can remember where we were and what we were doing and how we felt. Hopefully all the experiences will make us wise. I want to be a wisewoman. Not just a woman who is wise but a Wisewoman. It sounds more romantic anyway!

I love reading L'Engle's non-fiction. If you've never read her, try her. She also writes sci-fi, but I'm not into that AT ALL.

I'm not interested in science fiction, but I loved L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time. It's a spiritual book.

I think we are the same as I love L'Engle's non fiction ~~ every one of them! Makes me want to reread her memoirs and books on art , faith and writing. She was Luci Shaw's best friend. Friends for the Journey is one that I passed from friend to friend.
