A new life at 67.Can a woman start all over again?


I have seen the glass flowers at Harvard,- never changing in their artificial beauty.

But the flowers which surprised me today were real.

They look and smell like a breath of Spring as I see them before me on the table now.

A huge bouquet of unruly orange poppies,yellow roses,their petals tipped in amber.Green snowballs,white narcissis and some small orange lillies which I think come from South Africa and of which I don’t know the name. All bedded in a sea of green.

Beautiful,  but not for ever. Beautifull but real.


Consider the lillies of the field,how they grow;they toil not,neither do they spin:

And yet I say unto you.That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed  like one of these.`

Bible. St.Matthew.

  1. Nothing lasts forever, especially nothing real and beautiful. That’s the beauty of it, cause if it would, we wouldn’t recognise it……
    Happy Birthday!
    PS. Been trying to call but it comes up either busy or no answer or dead….. ?
