Fear of dementia

Dementia. It’s the elephant in the room. The big fear that we will not be able to live out our crone years in joy and wit and strength. And I think there’s something about our baby boomer generation that believes we can conquer it, even though many of us will have known the experience of caring…

Is yours an Earth Pathway?

Each year, I get a copy of the most beautiful diary you can possibly imagine. Called Earth Pathways, it is chock-full of poetry and other magical words, art work and festivity. Each day has the phases of the moon and sunrise and sunset times, and the festivals which mark the turning wheel of the year….

Where do you want to grow old?

Perhaps, like me, you’re beginning to wonder how you’ll live out the last years of your life. This Baby Boomer generation of ours has, I believe, advantages and disadvantages. We have the strength and determination to believe we can enter our old age with more vim and vigour than our parents. And sometimes we believe…

1000 Grandmothers

Send in a thousand grandmothers They will surely volunteer With their ancient wisdom flowing They will lend a loving ear I‘d never heard Holly Near’s song 1000 Grandmothers before Jane mentioned it in a comment recently. (If you don’t know it, you can listen to a version of it here.) What a thought eh? One thousand…

How does freedom feel?

The results of my prize draw are at the end of this post! I have a clear memory from when I was five or six years old. I was galloping down the street pretending to be a horse. Only I wasn’t pretending: I could feel the wind in my mane, smell the sea air in…

On the road again

Welcome back to Pilgrim’s Moon! Let’s continue together on the journey to a creative and joyful old age. (Read to the end for what’s new and my gift give-away.) I want to make magic here: to create a fireside space where we can share our stories. Once or twice a week I’ll write about how we…

Did you leap?

So? Did you take a leap to celebrate 2012′s Leap Day on 29th February? Did you do something brave or silly or generous or selfish? This is your chance to tell us all about it. What have you been doing? So far, I’ve had emails from wonderful women describing these leaps: Offered to recite a story…

Where did our joy go?

On Sunday at church we had a very gloomy-doomy sermon. Lent. Repentance. Giving up things we enjoy. Evil. Sackcloth. Temptation. Ashes. Look, I know that if you choose to follow this mad religion of mine, you’re signing up for a certain amount of tragedy. It is, after all, based on sin and salvation. The symbol…

I wish you love

I wish you shelter from the storm, A cosy fire to keep you warm, But most of all, when snowflakes fall I wish you love. Music Leo Chauliac, English lyrics Albert A Beach Sung beautifully here by Blossom Dearie  It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day if we didn’t think about love, would it? And I’m thinking…

We go bonobo

There’s a passage in Jean Shinoda Bolen’s excellent book Gather the Women, Save the World in which she talks about the little-known bonobo ape. Like chimpanzees, bonobos share 98% of their DNA with us humans, but unlike the male-dominated, warlike chimpanzee, bonobos would rather make love than war and are female-dominated, although this domination is lightly…
