The word 'crone' is of great interest to me.
By definition, this single word conjurs up for us an ' old, ugly hag' and yet, in the same spell, manifests a woman 'venerated for her knowledge, wisdom and experience.
However, when we come together, re-claiming the true magic of our crone-hood, stepping with joy into our full power, we can make great changes as we age together.
We are more wise, more knowledgeable and can draw on our deepest depths of experience for the good of the planet.
To my mind, this is true beauty.
