" The old woman was once revered, when people revered the Great Mother, when they saw the beauty of birth, death and rebirth, the power of transformation. Now, we sit around and pretend we don’t get old and we don’t die. We feel the shift happening and we dig our heels in and pretend we can’t be touched." Julie Daley

Astrid Lindgren (the mother of Pippi Longstocking and other famous children's books) I loved watching interviews with her (n Swedish) -- she had a lovely turn of phrase, a down to earth, unsentimental but very loving approach to life and a delicious sense of humor.
