I used to use this sketch as my profile picture for Facebook. I decided to sketch it in my “Crone” journal. After I finished the sketch I ran across a quote by Sophia Loren which complimented the sketch. As we age sometimes we find ourselves without partners and the important thing is to get out there anyway. Go to Senior Centers – make new friends. Explore, learn, enjoy. Travel when you can! Soak up all that life has to offer.
As I am collecting and writing about CROONHOOD it reminded me to tell you Maidens and Mothers to get out there and enjoy your life. Live in the moment . Life is the here and now so forget about the past and the future is not yet here. There is a reason the ‘Present’ is called the present for it is a gift to enjoy. So unwrap that present each and every day with the intent to savor each moment, each event, each lesson learned. You will never live it over again so make the best of it.

When I seen this artwork it brought back such good memories of the show Bewitched ….. and of course Endora was my favorite. She was knowledgeable, gutsy, humorous, and mischievous! She was everything I wanted to grow up to be.
Looking back on my life I feel like I have accomplished what I set out to be and more. I can think outside the box, I am willing to be open to new learning experiences, I can blend the old with the new, and I am gutsy, humorous, and mischievous. Knowledge has been a huge part of my life along with using my artistic talents. I often use my artwork to express myself and the lessons I have learned.
I give gratitude for the creation of this character.
