A Seasoned Woman

“A seasoned woman is spicy. She has been marinated in life experiences.

Like a complex wine, she can be alternately sweet, tart, sparkling, mellow.

She is both maternal and playful. Assured, alluring, and resourceful.

She is less likely to have an agenda than a young woman – no biological clock tick-tocking beside her lover’s bed,

no campaign to lead him to the altar, no rescue fantasies. The seasonal woman knows who she is.

She could be any one of us, as long as she is committed to living fully and passionately

in the second half of her live, despite failures and false starts. “

~ Gail Sheehy

Happy International Women’s Day!
