Reading note: The Bird Sisters of Wisconsin remember
By Linda Waggener
The Bird Sisters, a novel by Rebecca Rasmussen, spans the long, interesting lives of two Wisconsin women and, among many special moments, has the following descriptive note on aging that I thought worth sharing.
This comes from the pondering of sister Millie who "... didn't quite know when what had happened to her body had happened. The sagging skin beneath her knees told one story, the liver spots on her hands told another.
She wished she had taken a moment to appreciate her youth while she was still youthful. And her chin... the pull of gravity had turned what was once one into two. The chins worked against each other like cresting waves, crash they went, you're old, they said."
