Greater Vision

- Joy Krauthammer ©

The very morning 
I discovered Elderwomen Musings, 
inspired, my vision extended 
to the mountain beyond the mountain, 
a scene I had never before seen. 
Edith, dear friend in her 89th year,
 at 7 am called to tell me 
her home’s interior 
was infused in pink from the sky.
 I went outside to see. 
I saw another world, 
mountain behind mountain revealed.
I am grateful.
I'm so pleased to let you know that Greater Vision is published in "Elderwomen Musings."
I'm excited to discover Elder Women who love life and so sweetly express their wisdom, truth, and artistry. It feels good to be in their circle as guest artist of life.
Please see site and enjoy. You are invited to comment.

  1. Your "Elderwomen Musing" is beautiful.
    How true that we focus on what we focus on and never see beyond.
    Thanks for connecting me to such wonder.

  2. Joy,
    Thank you for sharing.

  3. Glad to know you, elderwoman!

My rebbe Yosef tells me, "No one’s joy is complete unless he can share it with others."

This is probably why I love to share my joy writings with YOU.

I look forward to hearing from you.
