Words that stick to me today

Ours to define and enjoy are words from Marianna Crane from Nursing Stories in her blog today titled Getting the message the Second Time Around. The whole piece struck a chord with me, and my first early morning thought was those words will stick with me today.

Marianna Crane:

Like me, has been a nurse for over forty years.

Like me she is retired.

She has been honoured by Intely Care for having one of the top ten nursing blogs.

She is an active champion of nurses still in the field.

Even if you are not a nurse, her blog is an interesting place to visit.

Perhaps you too will come across some words that stick to you. Today’s wisdom is based on Twyla Tharp’s book, Keep it Moving

Then of course my next stick to me words were in a book. Today, I picked up from the library JB’s suggestion from this blog the other day, The Mist by Ragnar Jonasson. And like her, I have picked it up and won’t be putting it down easily.

So I bid you adieu from North of 43 and I am off to read more words that stick with me.

One is about 43 degrees latitude N. and longitude 80 W, The other almost equidistant south latitude and longitude 174 E. Two women, two minds, different personalities and experiences, choosing a life of meaning, continual growth and learning, at the same time negating ageist opinions of exactly what ‘an old lady’ should be.

  1. I jumped over to her blog. Well. Aging and denial. I can completely relate even though I’m sitting here with new ‘aging’ information. I can’t really hear or see the information too well with my head still buried in the sand….
