Write. Share. Give. Join the March Slice of Life Story Challenge @ Two Writing Teachers ______________________________
I’ll be 48 on October 9th. I’m excited to be 50. Is that weird? In so many ways, I’m where I need to be. I’m ready to be in my fifties. I’m prepping for it. Really. I’ve started growing out my gray hair. I have wanted to have gray hair for a long time, but people are oddly averse to that. They tell me to keep dying my hair, that no one should look too old. I want to be that woman who is cool, not done. I want gray hair and funky hats. I want jeans and white tee shirts. I want Ray Ban eye glasses and Frye boots. I want stacks of books and long silk scarves. I want to watch my children grow and need me less. I want to travel to places where the sea goes on forever. I want to write every day and I want my writing to be published. I want to be rooted so deeply in my life that my branches grow new ones.
