HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY EVERYONE…There is a lot to be said for aging gracefully, for accepting who we are and for not just coming to terms with our world and ourselves, but for embracing maturity and celebrating all that we are and still can become.
I began the process of researching a theme for my blog this morning on working in the sublime when I was stopped dead in my tracks and was transported to a land so beautiful that I felt as if I had gone to Heaven. What I came across, literally, made my heart sing. I have only cried three times in my entire life for absolute joy: first, when I saw Venice for the first time; second, when I viewed mansard roofs in Paris against the bluest of skies I had ever seen, and, then, today–just moments ago–when I set my eyes on this not-to-be-believed Internet site. As I scrolled through it I found myself on a journey that lead me to places that only my spirit could go. I invited my husband who is a connoisseur of beautiful women over a certain age (of course, he is French!) to come and see all that he cherishes in mature women for on this site one sees visuals through the eyes of a female soul who has grown to appreciate the finer things of life.
There, before his eyes, personified, is the explanation that justifies his preference of an older woman over a younger one (he refers to them as unfinished). What I put before him, he agreed, is the reason why he is only to be tempted by the wiles of a woman who has lived and who has been nourished by many of the majestic moments of life. Like me, he was able instantly to identify the attributes of Deryn Mentock’s own divinely bestowed creative energy so complete that it instantly engendered an appreciation for the moment and our gratitude to this stranger who, in spirit, was an old friend.
This lovely lady’s gift to all of us and her willingness to find a way to materialize her thoughts and spiritual perceptions of beauty made my heart sing! See for yourself! I would love your feedback; better, yet, I know she would love to hear your personal responses.
Please go visit and be touched by her site. Still not convinced? Here is her description of the word Sublime: “1. Characterized by nobility; majestic. 2. a. Of high spiritual, moral or intellectual worth. b. Not to be excelled; supreme. 3. Inspiring awe; impressive. 4. to convert (something inferior) into something of higher worth.” For certain, this is what she did! http://www.somethingsublime.typepad.com/ or visit her blog: her blog “Consider Myself Adorned” (Monday, March 8) where there are pictures of the workshop attendees
