I am a Phoenix
As a 1960's teenager, I was intrigued by this concept, little knowing that my 21st century self would, at least metaphorically, one day do the same. I have not lived 100 years yet, but over half as much and it has been a full life including family, marriage, motherhood, friends, and experiential learning. Five years ago I became a widow and began a new journey. The question became could I arise from the ashes of my old life into something as beautiful and fierce and resilient as the phoenix of mythology. The answer is Yes, I can and Yes, I will. Stay tuned for what happens next.
