In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort. Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause (a very good thing, indeed) I have chosen to send a little love to my favourite blogs.
Day 9 – Cronechronicler
This lovely lady goes by the name Vivachange77 and I’ve been following her for over three years, thanks to Andrea over at Harvesting Hecate. Those circles, I tell you! She shares her life’s happenings through poetry of all sorts, oftentimes through a simple, perfectly worded Haiku.
Regularly, we’ll get a non-poem-styled post where she shares the joys and funny happenings of life and getting older. Kudos to this lady who took (or rather, re-took) to writing later on in life!
I once had an exchange with her (of course I can’t find it) where we discussed her use of “crone” and I told her I could not bring myself to use such a term! She very gently explained that a crone is a not just an evil old woman; there is a positive aspect in that she is a grandmother, a wisdom keeper, seer and healer and midwife. I no longer feel it is a harsh term! And, it definitely applies to you, dear Vivi!
