Stereo

Stereotypical mid-40s woman:

Glass of red
Yoga mat (perhaps dusty)
Recipes in books and in her head
Running list of foods her offspring love and despise
Greys (clothing, hair)
Life written on her face
Easy laugh that comes from perspective and self-deprecation
Acceptance of what is and what is not
Purposeful gaze
Nearly wise but still learning hard lessons
Yearning for offspring independence but
Spilling last minute life to do lists into their ears before it’s too late
Setting her needs aside, but only temporarily because she has learned that most things in life are temporary
