Will you grow old gracefully, or will you wear purple and a red hat?
I first came across the poem Warning by Jenny Joseph 6 years ago. I was in a book shop looking for a fortieth birthday present for my best friend. I think it was the reference to the red hat that drew me to the book initially. The BF loves red, but has always shied away from wearing it because she says it makes her hair look green. As I read on I thought the poem suited her perfectly – she has always been prepared to be a little outrageous and I can’t imagine for one second that she would let old age stand in her way.
When I saw this month’s challenge at ARTastic I knew immediately which photo I wanted to use and the colour scheme (combined with a requirement to include a hat) reminded me of the poem.
The LO is based on a sketch courteousy of Shimelle’s Explore class.
While I was looking for the text to include on my LO, I came across this site. I like the sound of the Red Hat Society. Who says the fun and adventures have to stop when you reach 50?
Should I wait until I am 50 to become a Red Hatter, or should I buy a lilac outfit and a pink hat, so that I can practice a little now?
