Happy 60th Birthday
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:).
