As they draw near to their eternal home.
Leaving the old, both worlds at once they view
That stand upon the threshold of the new.

When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple
with a red hat that doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
and satin candles, and say we’ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired
and gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
and run my stick along the public railings
and make up for the sobriety of my youth…
– Jenny Joseph



Lhasa, Tibet



Grow old along with me.  The best is yet to be.

When we’re young we have faith in what is seen, but when we’re old we know that what is seen is traced in air and built on water.
