I have diligently, but disgruntingly, studied the issues of Scrapping that my friend Alexandra pointed me toward in an attempt to solve the theft problems that have lately sprung up here at The Stitchery.
I added the Creative Commons license (much, I assume, to the dismay of those who use feed burners to keep up with posts and edits of posts here). I will also add the opening line above to each of my new posts. Scrapers will now pick up that referring link and the reader can link back to The Stitchery from whence it came without me having to figure out the editing of an RSS feed.
So KISS! I send KISSES out to all; glittering cyber-celebraties and shimmering cyber-hiders.
I’ve put in my time at being a good cyber-citizen today. Let the villains know that they will not outlast me, I intend to be writing, very sporadically, for a lot longer than theives have the patience for. For I have decided that blogging is just a creative outlet, a journal for me and my friends, nothing more, nothing less. And I am going to assume I will have the capacity to write for quite a few more years.
Blogging behavior out of the way I can now get down to blogging. I only have a short time left today.
Aging. Being Of A Certain Age. Middle life and beyond. Baby boomer.
I have ventured into the subject here and in private emails and rarely find anyone willing to discuss being over 55 and the issues we face. It seems to be a banned topic, something that makes people, especially fashion involved woman, very uncomfortable. Notice I didn’t write my own age?
I will turn 58 in a few months. I like myself much more, have learned so much in the past few years, and no longer have that unpredicatible predator, menopause, in pursuit. I see where it’s important to not look my age, not feel my age, not discuss my age. No one wants to read about it, think about it, really see it.
But it happens to us all, those of us lucky enough to live long enough.
To paraphrase someone (I can’t remember whom exactly) Aging is not for Sissies!
My favorite people are my age and older. I love the grace and intelligence of The Wisdom Set
Anyone reading here have a favorite Wisdom Set personage they would love to share?
