Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

I tried to write this morning and it was a bust. Now it may not be midnight but I feel I’m just getting to the ball and I’ll have to flee before my coach is a pumpkin again. I want so to dance and make beautiful words and have a prince or two be glad I’m here. This chance to write is fabulous. I am excited about my theme and creating lots of posts and learning how things work. I’m looking for a bright tomorrow. But I hear the clock striking and that’s all for today.

    I enjoyed your post from this morning! I thought it was insightful – the oral tradition idea. I’ve been feeling quite intimidated by the sheer number of us, but the way you put it was far more positive – the recording of the many voices, the sharing of so many stories, adding to our pool of wisdom and experience. I’m loving that someone of more accumulated years would be talking about them.

      Thanks. I wondered if anyone would want to read my crone stuff. Your comment affirms my being here. I love finding your writings that bare your soul.

        Isn’t it great when you feel that someone resonates with what you’re writing? I certainly do enjoy your writing – please do keep doing it!! (And your title is confrontationally hilarious 🙂 )

      • vivachange77 says:

        Yes! It makes all the difference when someone else gets your writing. About my title – I hadn’t thought about it’s being confrontational. I do like this dimension!! Thanks. You keep on writing, too. You put a human face on blogging for me.

      • Chaos Girl says:

        Really? It’s wonderful to feel you do that for someone! You are a different kind of blogger – you write from the heart with a calm wisdom and consideration. I am really enjoying your posts.

        You do so much for me by responding to my posts, particularly when you acknowledge that I’m a different sort of blogger. Part of being a woman of accumulated years is losing inhibitions. I’ve always been open, now I’m audacious. That is part of the fun of aging. I feel the greatest gift I have to give now is to write from my heart and share my wisdom. That is who Cronechronicler is.

        You write from your heart, too. The feelings I sensed in your letter to your cousin made me cry. I never expected writing 101 to open me up emotionally. Now I’m into to this mysterious experience for what it is, Learning to write a blog is secondary. I trust the process.

      • Chaos Girl says:

        I love that – being audacious, and trusting the process. I’m sorry it took me a while to reply – I was pressed for time, but also, your words made me think a lot and I didn’t want to rush a reply.
        As far as I’ve gone (I’m 40), I’ve really enjoyed getting older. More self-knowledge, finally some self-assurance, some wisdom, about people especially. And I’m really very much enjoying your perspective. Thanks for coming here and writing! Young people are getting out and sharing their stories, but we’re missing out on the maturest stories because of technological hurdles. I wonder how many voices we (as the human race) have missed for various reasons, like women’s voices being unheard all these centuries. A lot of lost potential (not just women).

    When I clicked on your comment to reply I somehow ended up on a space where your Writing 101 about a view was posted. In your various posts that I’ve read you change your language to match feelings and situations. Really good writing I think. And best of all is I’m getting a feeling for the real person you are through your writing. Just know how much I “get” your writing even while I’m loving exchanging comments. I see wisdom and self assurance in your writing. You are being wise in the midst of your “chaos”. I think I started there. I now have the freedom and space to take stock of where I’ve been at my leisure.

    About technology – you’re spot on. Most of my friends in their 90’s are not at all interested in my new adventure. I still have not figured out linking my assignments from my personal blog to the Commons and comments to me end up in my email and post on my blog. Talk about mess! I figure that after writing 101 is over I’ll go back and straighten everything up. In the meantime I’ve at least figured out how to get my assignments seeable to you and a few others.

    I really appreciate your wanting the voices of us elders included in 101. I plan to write about the group I’ve ended up with in the apartment where I live. Super women. I consider this time of my life incomparable . Or maybe it just suits me. I’m serious, like you, and an introvert. I liked being 40, too. I accidentally went to Bermuda for a week by myself the year I hit 40. Another story.
