Regular readers know that I am a fan of crones and croning.
Rick Moody offers an nice roundup of the concept for the uninitiated…
Does a woman merely have to grow older to become a Crone, or
does it mean something more?
For some answers to that question, see the magazine
“Crone: Women Coming of Age”
Also read “Entering the Crone Age” an interview with
Jungian psychotherapist Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D.
THE CRONE: Woman of Age, Wisdom, and Power, by Barbara Walker
THE CREATIVE CRONE: Aging and the Poetry of May Sarton and Adrienne
Rich, by Sylvia Henneberg (Univ. of Missouri Press, 2010).
Art work inspired by the Croning idea, can be found HERE
