Today I am 45. Today I am the same as I was yesterday when I was 44. Except that today I am a little bit older. I dreamed only last night that I was my child self being held in the arms of my self as a much older woman with wrinkles and wisdom.
Today I find myself seeking balance. Balance in work and art and rest. Balance between child self and wise woman self. Balance in relationships.
The shadows may be lengthening, but soon the balance will be tipped by Nature, and again the sun will be ascendant. Whether I seek it or not, this balance also will be restored.
