This week I thought it would be interesting to ask one of the girls a few questions. Sadhvi just turned 52, she doesn’t take or do anything (yet) to cope with the sudden change in hormonal levels, but she is chanting more and being more selective in what she does for others. I hope you enjoy what she had to say:
1) What was the first record/album you ever received/bought for yourself?
“Good Vibrations” by the Beach Boys. It was a 45 and I bought it at Woolworth’s. It probably cost 89 cents. At the age of 8, I experienced the word “psychedelic” when I listened to that song. It literally put my mind into another place. I loved it and played it over and over and over again.
2) What is one of your most vivid childhood memories?
The first thing that pops into my head is “falling in love” with Elvis when I was very young. I had a dream of him and felt that physical sensation that one gets when one is “in love”!
3) What lesson would you like to pass on to younger women, now that you are a woman over 50?
Hmmmm… what have I learned to be able to pass along? Well, I don’t know if I have completely got it yet, but maybe the most important thing is to try to be OK with how you are, how you look, how you react…everything. Why? Because everything changes so quickly, that to try to hold onto ideas of how to “be”, how to “look”, etc. are so irrelevant and a complete waste of time.
4) What turns you on, as a woman over 50?
That’s a good question…not much! Since I don’t have good sex any more, I would have to say my garden, painting, and being with friends.
Oh, and a good bottle of wine actually turns me on too… I can always count on La Crema’s Pinot Noir to make me feel something divine.
5) What is one of your dreams for the future?
To be able to get away with my husband and dog more often, instead of working all the time.
6) What is one product you can’t live without that other women over 50 might enjoy/benefit from?
I cannot go out without having my favorite lipstick on, and that is one by Chanel. I have tried all sorts of different brands over the years, and this one puts me into a sensual frame of mind that I can say I enjoy…I think they use roses and raspberry and vanilla and I really like that smell. Plus, the texture is perfect.
Thanks Sadhvi…that was fun!
