Act Your Ages!

May 29, 2023

It’s sundown Saturday on an unusually quiet Pescadero beach. I sit with Jamie, our dog, marveling at another technicolor sunset. Earlier today, I bid adieu to eighteen lovely women looking to manifest love after 50. Over the course of this MEA Mastery Week, I saw decades melt from their faces, while wisdom slowly injected into their spirit.

These women weren’t just 54, 59, or 68...they were 12, 25, and 42—a miracle that was beautifully expressed long ago by the author Madeleine L’Engle (A Wrinkle in Time):

“I am still every age that I have been. Because I was once a child, I am always a child. Because I was once a searching adolescent, given to moods and ecstasies, these are still part of me, and always will be. Because I was once a rebellious student, there is and always will be in me the student crying out for reform. This does not mean that I ought to be trapped or enclosed in any of these ages, but that they are in me to be drawn on; to forget is a form of suicide; my past is part of what makes the present Madeleine and must not be denied or rejected or forgotten.”

After the women headed to the airport, I constructed a driftwood castle on the beach, while Jamie and I enjoyed the ocean view. A neighbor traversed the sand with his pitching iron and two Golden Retrievers. Our deserted three-mile stretch of beach was the perfect spot to work on his golf swing. An hour passed and a lone woman arrived at the beach. Not knowing we were nearby in our castle, she started singing to the breaching whales, all in the fairy tale voice of a little girl.

How can you tap into the best of all of the ages you’ve ever been?
