From being a young girl, I have longed to be wise - never rich, never a beautiful princess. In childhood's fairy tales, I was always more interested in the wise, old person who could help our hero on his quest.
Two weeks today, I shall turn 50. It feels a landmark - not least given my health issues! But also a life-journey landmark - the beginning of crone-dom, the beginning of a deep, inner wisdom.
And the background colour - the same turquoise of the Understanding card, the colour of the throat chakra.
But one of my all-time favourite quotes is from Jimi Hendrix

And my hope is, in seeking Wisdom, I will listen more and speak less...
