Hi Pam, I've been out of touch for a while, but still following you! I love this- did you know Grace is the name of the main character in my book, "Open with Love?" for much the same reasons, she is on a path to discover and define herself, and wrestles heartily with that voice! I hope you are well, keep writing!

Thanks, Pam, I know it can be a little freaky. The most important thing is to know you are in a filter bubble. Once you know that, you can claim power over it. I keep hoping one of my computer genius friends will come up with an app to enable us to peak into the filter bubbles of people who have different beliefs, so we can understand their "world." I believe that if you really 'get' the world someone experiences, you can build bridges. I think it's also fascinating the way it lines up with the spiritual/manifesting teachings of what you focus on increases. Certainly this is EXACTLY how this whole filter bubble thing works. We train our Google, our Facebook, all of these filters to show us what we interact with (i.e. focus on) so on FB if we always like or comment on, for example, people's pictures of food they are eating, we see more pictures of food. Then we wonder why FB is so "shallow." If we click on upsetting news, we see only more and more catastrophe. I have a practice of training FB what I like. (funny stuff, inspirational, stuff, beautiful images for example.) I know that the more I interact with these things, the more I'll see. But I don't think for one minute that FB is my be-all end all source for what's happening in the world. I just enjoy funny/inspirational/beautiful things. And pictures of my grand baby and nieces, lol. Hugs! -R

Hi Pamela, thanks for this lovely article. In my book, Open With Love, the mentor character is a beautiful white-haired Elder, who loves all things about her aging body. I wrote her to inspire my journey there. Living in Los Angeles, you almost never see anyone with their real hair color. SInce I've allowed mine to show, I get tons of compliments. I hope to be changing the mold. It's up to Spirited Women to be the models of what's possible. Invisible is an attitude, I hope. May your 70s and 80s be bold and vivacious! Hooray for you!

Hooray, Beryl, for your persistence in logging in to post (I actually struggled with that myself the first few times I went to do it, so I know!) ANd thank you especially for the lovely imagery, which allowed me to feel as if I were one of your friends, sharing the natural beauty with you.

Thank you, Lyn.It is really true that women are unlike men in our relationship to our bodies and it is so important that we honor that fact when we exercise, as in every other way! Your Lotus Project is intriguing as well! Keep up the good work.

Andrea- this is great! I, too get hijacked by the "bag-lady fear" and can lose hours or whole days to it. Uggh. I came a cross this quote this morning, seems so much in line with your topic: "The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping the old ones." -John Maynard Keynes. Keep it up, you rock! -R
