|Ajijic: fallen flowers after the rain
Recently, as my life took an abrupt turn, I’ve been thinking about this stage of life and about “wise women.”
Talking about this with a friend, we started designing a retreat for wise women. The retreat idea hit a snag, but it left me still thinking about this stage of life and what lessons are to be learned during this time we have left on this planet, in this body.
The questions are many and the answers few. It seems to make sense that the first question might be:
what is a wise woman?
This morning, with my bags already packed for my move to Reno, I woke up with this question in my mind. The answer that came to me was:
A Wise Woman is someone
who has been through the fires of life
and emerged tempered, stronger,
lessons in hand, grateful and generous.
That’s my answer for now, but I would like to hear yours. Please comment below.
