Headline--July 26, 1996:
Along with the appearance of those first crow's feet, wisps of white peeking through, a few little sags here and there with a wrinkle or two thrown in comes the realization that good habits and healthy living will not exempt us from aging or experiencing moments when all we want is the coolness of a Breeze to gently ease our discomfort.
When we first hear the word "Crone" we cringe. Dreadful images appear before us, some not so flattering but as we continue to explore the True meaning of this word we find ourselves captivated by the meaning it extends to us.
The word Crone is derived from the Tradition of the Triple Goddess depicting the 3 stages of a woman's development... birth: innocent, virginal, maiden: wife, mother, and finally elder: wise-woman, crone. The Crone is a being of age old wisdom and was widely recognized for her wisdom, knowledge and spirituality. At the time of menopause, it is said that she herself can partake of its Wisdom. In many older cultures she became known as crone or hag, words whose original meaning meant "wise one", revered elder of the circle.
The word crone has long been defined by society's disdain for old women. Here, we choose to name ourselves "crones" to raise consciousness around issues of aging. Crone is not the disregarded old hag that is defined by Webster but rather as the fulfillment of female life experiences and wisdom.
