Woman at 33

I wrote this in 2001, and it has just been one grand adventure since then! ;D

***

The me I was
at 23--

the same old dreams,
the same old spunk,
without
the same old fears--

is the me
I am
now.

I have come home
to me
at last.

Looking forward to 83!

Thank you, Victoria. I'll be 43 next year, and I'm sure it'll just get grander!

It's a difficult journey, yes; but rich and full, as well-- don't you agree? ;D 'Wouldn't have it any other way!
