The Crone...."she embraced the Twilight"

The Crone.....most folks think of a crone as an old, ugly, woman with gnarled hands, and long gray hair....which has nothing better to do than scare little children! But, to me, She is way more than that. She is a woman who has LIVED....her life to the fullest....she is knowledgeable in the ways of Life, as She, has learned from her mistakes.... lived with all of her Heart and Soul!

She, still, loves to sneak out at night when the Moon is full and dance under the moon.....she still loves her big, shiny, earrings and necklaces and bangles galore.....She still likes to smile and flirt with the cute bag boy at the grocery store, just to see him blush! Plastic surgery for Her, Never, as the wrinkles upon her face and neck...well, She earned them all!

I've had several crones in my life that have influenced me and loved me, just the way I was. Granny Minchew....Duffie.....and even,my beautiful Mom....they all aged and are aging to be the wisest women I've ever known. And, as I enter my 58th year of Life....I hope that I can be a good influence and guide to some young woman as they have been to me.

So, let me share my newest folk art painting with you:




Blessings to each of you today,

Deborah

  5. Hi Deborah: I just stumbled across your blog this morning, and I consider what you've written a gift. I turn 65 tomorrow, and I expect to celebrate my crone-iosity each day of my life. I'm going to email your words to my co-crones; this site must be shared.

  6. I love your story. It is so true. As a young person you never think about the labels you put on someone till you get to the "crones" age. Your painting is lovely and lively too. I saw your post on Crafty Thurs. Thanks for sharing
