Ever since menopause set in, I’ve gotten grumpy about my body.
Aging makes me sad.
The vanity issues.
And the bigger issues.
I’m determined to keep in the best shape I can, but alas, time is the Great Winner in the battle of the body, I suspect.
Janine Canan’s poem, “This Body,” socked it to me on first reading.
How dare I not appreciate Body Barbara until her very last day?
What about you?
Are you a body ditzer or a body appreciator?
“This Body” is part of June Cotner’s latest volume, Gratitude Prayers: Prayers, Poems, and Prose for Everyday Thankfulness published in February 2013 by Andrews McMeel Publishing.
