I AM A 56 Year Old Powerful Woman
One of the women I live with photographed me after our morning house meditation practice. She wanted to show all of me. The 56 year old woman who owns pleasure, pain and power. The unveiling of me. Letting go of the “nice girl” with the smile. This is a photo that shows who I am and where I have been. No cover up. Raw, real, direct, powerful.
I resisted posting this photo of me on Facebook. I can see the lines around my eyes. I see a weathered sadness, a deep mystery, a few more gray hairs and an aging neck.
But, the more I looked, really looked into my eyes, I saw a woman who has looked life squarely in the face over and over. Challenging, embracing, inspiring, discovering and owning my power.

Ain’t no stopping us now LIFE.
