Wisdom (n) - spiritual knowledge present in the soul of all human beings...unfolded from within one's own consciousness.

This week's blog post is Part 2 in the introduction of "Holding the Bones", my photo project celebrating the wisdom and images of women over age 60.  What wisdom am I looking for in this project?

Not Oprah

This project is about YOUR PERSONAL WISDOM - the spiritual knowledge you have accumulated during your years.

As much as we may love Oprah, Eleanor Roosevelt and Maya Angelou, this project is NOT about their wisdom.  

This project is NOT about refrigerator magnet wisdom

The world wants the spiritual knowledge - the wisdom - that YOU have deep within your heart and soul.

The world wants and needs your wisdom

  • to honor,
  • to live,
  • to sanctify,
  • to support,
  • to grow,
  • to love,
  • to heal,
  • to be grateful,
  • to Be.

Some may spend time in deep contemplation to find that wisdom.

For others, it may spring fully formed from the depths of your being in a flash.

That is the wisdom we want

...that wisdom that allows you to see life in its clarity.

...that wisdom that is uncontaminated by thoughts of negativity and hopelessness.

...that wisdom that changed how you live your life.

...that wisdom that encourages your wonder and awe.

I still need your help!

Are you a woman over 60 with wisdom to share? Or, do you know a wise woman that is willing to share her wisdom and her image?

Please forward this information to that person, any way you can.
