What is it that a woman of maturity quests for?

or by a past that is forever looming.
Empowerment: to know, once and for all, that

inner resources, releasing fear’s hold.

Celebration: to live with anticipation, surprise,
and ultimately joy.
Connection: to recognize in each living moment
that none of the above is obtained in a bubble.
I quest for true connection. The bravest quest of all.
