VALUE

BY WOMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE

In this lovely volume a diverse group of “Women of a Certain Age” share their journeys in their search to find new value or meaning in their lives as they face the myriad challenges  of aging. Creativity, courage and resilience mark their writing.  Through poetry, narrative or essay the authors touch heart, soul and mind. Those of us who are in the process of recomposing our own lives will find “Value” a welcome, heartfelt companion.

. . . These women speaking in “Value” share individual stories and poems, but they all lead the way with courage as they approach the edge. That edge is not death, but life: vibrant and singing in its richness and authenticity. They have much to teach younger generations. This is a book for the women and the men who want to be inspired to live their own lives of richness, no matter their age.

This new anthology of poetry and prose is written mainly by New Mexico women writers who now are, or soon will be, in the category of “senior citizens.” Many of these writers are well known in the state and the quality of the texts is high, just as the topics are quite varied. Needless to say, gender issues as well as universal themes are both addressed. I can’t recall another book like this anthology published in New Mexico, which focuses on women writers, in the way this book does. I can recommend it strongly to potential readers.

              INSIDE VALUE:

Denise Weaver Ross

 Nine Stars of a Swan Song

 

She moves through constellations

with dragons on her wing, flying horses

at her flank, encompassing entire worlds,

swirls of super giants, dwarfs, transiting planets, 

and a black hole pulsating like a thump in her throat,

but still she sings while descending into the inevitable dark.

 

 

Sylvia Ramos Cruz

I see myself no longer through the prism of the world  . . . but through the microscope of my eyes delving deeper  into the immense wonder  of my universe . . .

 

Mary Dezember

Reclaiming our world means obtaining equality.

 

Dale Harris

In every situation, I remind myself to go for value, striving to act in ways that ensure

I maintain self-esteem even when things

don’t work out as I’d hoped.

 

Pamela Hirst

. . . any effort to recapture the past, is like chasing fog.

  

Gayle Lauradunn

We don't really have value

until we can stand alone and say “I am.”

 

Carol Moscrip

Thich Nhact Hahn said the most liberating words

I have ever heard: “All views are wrong.”

 

Susan Paquet

My condition does not impair my cognitive abilities.

 

Barbara Shaffer

Through my treasure trove  of life’s experiences,

I can now illuminate and softly shine like fine gold.

 

Mia Stageberg

. . . By seventy, so much has been gathered through our spirits, our intelligence, the responses of the heart!

It’s rich and astonishing!

 

Judy Wells

Don’t let fear of death, competition,

lack of listeners or money stop you.

 

Betty Lou Williams

To be truly comfortable in your own skin,

you must know your personality

and temperament type. 

 

Holly Wilson

Do I still have something to contribute?

Hell, yes!!

 

Emma Wisdom

. . . in life what we think we want isn’t always

the best thing to happen for us once we get our wish.
