Wise Women

My friend, photographer Carin Ingalsbe, and I share a love of old things. Among other objects, she photographs beautiful vintage ballet costumes. Recently she told me about a great book by Joyce Tenneson called Wise Women: A Celebration of their Insights, Courage and Beauty. Tenneson's gorgeous photographs capture the beauty of aging women, along with their wonderful words of wisdom. Wise Women was the best selling photography book in 2002. It is so well done. A real gem.

I thought I’d give you the heads-up about it because it would make a great Mother’s Day gift, or a wonderful birthday gift, as it is so inspiring.

Plus it's usually $40, but you can buy it on sale, or used, at Amazon :-)
