October 18th has been declared “World Menopause Day” by the International Menopause Society. The organization was formed in 1978 (!) during the second Menopause Congress (!!) and currently has members in 62 countries (!!!)
Here’s something I created about three years ago, during a particularly gnarly physical and emotional transition of about 4 years, between my 54th-62nd birthday. It is a perfect example of how artistic expression can help heal oneself over time. I hope it resonates with you, no matter your age or stage!
