I came across an interesting blog the other day. Angela writes about being an invisible woman.
My first thought when reading this is "Angela you are too young to be invisible".
It brought to mind what I have been thinking about myself a lot over the past few years. Being invisible would seem to fluctuate at times. Might be where I am at that moment, dressed or how I feel that particular day.
But as time goes by - I am truly invisible. For most of my adult years I was not invisible. Young career woman, active social life, busy wife, mother, active role in family business, enjoying all the upscale places and travel. A divorce and starting over at age 42 was a new journey.
Life has been changing for a number of years and in most ways I like it.
Freedom is what I call it!! The peace and simplicity I have been experiencing at Woodhaven over the last months has been a long time coming.
Will add that when I moved to the big city almost 3 years ago - I was truly invisible. I made this comment to my son - he always has a witty reply: "there are people who spend a lot of money to go places where they are invisible." Now back in my old homeplace I do see familiar faces from time to time and may not be 100% invisible.
Wondered as time goes on - when do others begin to feel invisible? Also the thought - is my feeling more invisible because I am One Woman.
