A Poem: " Aging Gracefully" 
-As I walk my garden, I’m stopped for contemplation by a poignant withering Peony bloom:
-Around me are women turning back age, by chiseling the sculpture that is their form, in hopes of dwelling happily within society’s youthful standards.
-Personally, this beautifully aging bloom inspires me to embrace my own inevitable declination.
-Its soft, pliable crepe-paper pedals are my skin from years of movement and exposure to a beautiful world.
-Its colorfully textured and mature center holds seeds of acquired wisdom and my desire to leave a legacy.
-The surrounding wind and weather are the multitudes of experiences, good and bad, that have softened my stem, allowing me to now bend with change. 
-Aging, for me, will be a graceful dance with life and love"

My Artful process: "After capturing this visual treasure in my camera, I then distill it down digitally, unveiling its essence, artfully altering, repeating and transforming its forms, colors, shapes so that the comes alive with a dynamic power greater than the some of it's parts." Julie
