The Aspect Of My Life

Happy 60th Birthday

So. This is 60.

I have used these years enjoying food, drink, friends and laughter.

I have traveled far and wide and met thousands upon my journeys.

I have danced in Greek tavernas, upon bar tops and to the beat of African drums.

I have married two men, and been a lover to many more.

I have born a son and known the joys of motherhood.

I have walked upon the earth in my bare feet and stood within ancient stone circles.

I have heard songs and music of such beauty it has caused me to weep.

I have seen much and long to see more.

My life has been one of remembering my Being and the wisdom that I hold.

I have lived a large and full life, filled with adventure and experience.

On the inside I feel 20 years old, and ancient with what I now know.

I don't miss my youth and embrace being an Elder.

But still wonder who that old woman could possibly be:).


  1. wonderful post! Happy 60 Susan! I'm headed towards a monumental "0" birthday in a few months too and feel I've not possibly done enough with my life yet to contemplating this age...but I agree that I'd rather be older than be younger, so I guess now's the time to just seize each day and live it up!

  2. Happy Birthday and wishes for many more happy years.

  3. Nicely written Susan....those years look great on you...many more as an elder and then a good and be well....

  8. Another happy birthday to you. Just remember, you are not only getting older, you are also getting better... and it shows.
