Lions Roar : September 2014
It’s not that I haven’t been warned that this would happen. Doris lessing, for one, has written about how, as we age, we lose the attri- butes that may have kept us visible—our thick curly hair, maybe, or a great body, smoldering eyes, or easy strength. We become smaller, and if we allow ourselves, more gray. We blend in with backgrounds. At some point, most of us also lose any straightfor- ward occupational identity that others can use to categorize us. For example, whenever I meet a new person, one of their first ques- tions is, “What do you do?” These days my answer can change by the minute. Sometimes I garden. Other times I watch various small children. Or clean. Or write. Or study sutras. The list is long. In Western society, pressure to be other-than-ordinary is con- stant. We want to be recognized as special. Early in the 1980s, I was in a long cross-country ski race in northern Michigan.
