Cronesunlimited.com Offers Literary Works and Vehicles of Self-expression for Best Years
For mature adults seeking to discover the Noble Elder within and a creative vehicle for self-expression, Crones Unlimited Press offers the writings of extraordinary men and women who have lived fully and powerfully.
The Crones of our Time, often referred to as Wisdom Keepers by Navahos, have a unique opportunity to share lessons learned. Such sharing often brings a wholeness and completion to both the mentor and the student.
"An increasingly larger percentage of our population is reaching the second half, but the best stage of life. With the miracles of medicine, elders are living healthier, more vital, prosperous lives. But they are living in a culture obsessed with youth," says Mary Fogarty, Managing Editor for Crones Unlimited Press.
"As a society, we often treat aging as an enemy to the death. Millions of dollars are spent annually in the U.S. to lift faces, busts and butts, to tuck tummies and to pop energy pills. But as individuals tried, the glory one finds comes not from investments in looking good, but from how well past losses have been handled. Through emotional maturity and spiritual insight Crones and Sages that age exquisitely, appreciate the roles they play as partners in the creation of a greater whole."
In a recent publication, A Crone’s Crossing, Ms. Fogarty reflects upon her crowning as a time to put the vanities of social life into the background. Breaking through negative cultural images, she portrays Cronehood as a time to greet the stranger in her mirror. "Aging, for me, is a time to enjoy my solitude, to give back my heart to itself and to feast on my creations," she says. "When I am fully engaged in sculpting, painting or writing, I am not conscious of my chronological age."
The mission of Cronesunlimited.com is to honor mature authors (men and woman) by offering a creative vehicle for self-expression. Crones Unlimited, a cooperative press, publishes and sells the writings of extraordinary elders who have lived fully and powerfully. Their writings are crowned with ageless wisdom and achievements that can transform everyday experiences into a resonating voice, which speaks to the radiant body/mind of others.
