Friday Feature a Friend

Friday Features’

Guest talks about

Old Age


Alicia Joseph

Wrinkles cover her thin-skinned ninety-two-pound body, compliments from her eighty-seven years of living in this, at times, tumultuous world. But she’s as easygoing as they come, mostly unbothered by external noise.

She’s a headstrong, entirely capable, and stubborn woman. I love all of those qualities about her. She minds her own business and lives the way she wants. She talks to me in her beautiful Irish accent. She was born on a farm in Ireland. She rode a horse to school with a trap in the back where kids hitched rides on the way. She misses the horses. The farm had rabbits and dogs and pigs, but she loved the horses the most.

A couple years ago, her son privately talked to her doctor to persuade the doctor to tell her she couldn’t drive anymore. One day she joined me…

Body Wisdom and Food Shopping

Today’s trip to my favorite store, Trader Joe’s, was always going to include an array of fruits, vegetables, and nuts, because my mental, emotional, physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies thrive on them.

When I saw these on the shelf, I didn’t think or hesitate to put them in the cart. I knew they were meant for me.

Now for a new approach and insight into how much my relationship with food and my bodies has changed – I wanted to find out why they were meant for me. What did my intuition know that my brain didn’t?

A quick search revealed that fresh green figs are:

High in vitamins A and C


Rich in calcium, iron, and potassium

Even without knowing the science behind what I need right now, my tastebuds are excited. Fresh figs are a treat. If you haven’t tried them, see if they call you in the store.

What food got the automatic green light last time you shopped?
