yesterday i had a crochet conversation with an 83 year old woman. she was bright eyed and beautiful. very beautiful. her hair was growing in black again starting at the front!! really, there was about a two inch band of black hair around her face. her son was shopping with her. he said he'd never known her to have any color hair but white. she said she was beginning her third childhood. they had a deep talk which yarn she was going to get. there were five of whatever particular yarn she wanted and she needed six. "because i want six" she said.....LOL... i love my lovely old lady customers. the ones who are past the silliness of the red hat stage and into the transcendent beauty of the threshold.
in thirty years i'll be there. see ya then.
