    Someone posted this on my Facebook yesterday and I thought I would share it. It isn't mine so i haven't put it into the poems section
    I Am Not Old
    I am not old…she said
    I am rare.
    I am the standing ovation
    At the end of the play.
    I am the retrospective
    Of my life as art
    I am the hours
    Connected like dots
    Into good sense
    I am the fullness
    Of existing.
    You think I am waiting to die…
    But I am waiting to be found
    I am a treasure.
    I am a map.
    And these wrinkles are
    Imprints of my journey
    Ask me anything.
    - Samantha Reynolds

    Ohhh. I like that. Can you put it on Pinterest. There is some very good stuff for "seniors" on there. I like a little bit of kick ass as opposed to sweet old dear stuff.

    There was a great pic with it too - i'm not so skilled but let me see if I add it later. When I do i'll pm you to let you know and then can you add it to Pinterest if you think it is a good idea - I don't do that - a step too far lol

    What a super duper mad hat. Twiggy in old age! Love her Apple cheeks.

    Yes doesn't she look wonderful - a big mixture of hug and total respect when I look at that picture - also my Ma would have been crazy enough to wear a hat like that both in her youth and at the end of her life, can't help but smile x
