“The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.” – Robert Frost
The horizontal lines deepening on your forehead, or the slim crescent moons that bracket your smile. Working out just to keep up with the kids, or savouring your relative strength to them while it lasts. Feeling overlooked among the young women on the street, or striding confidently past the cluster of men.
Depending on the woman, the man, and the day, any of these experiences can feel false or true. This week, 4Mothers discuss what it means to us to get older, whether we see it in our children, ourselves, our parents, our world.
