honouring and celebrating our passage into the third age.
This doll is made from a pattern by Sharry Olmstead.
Why are we so afraid of aging and the aged?
Why do we crowd them into care facilities for the old and infirm
instead of caring for them at home?
Are we afraid of daily facing our humanity, our mortality?
Are our lives so busy, so crowded,
that we cannot pause to listen, to honour their story?
