The Wilted Rose Project - Interviews and Insights from Women over 50
Why 'Wilted Rose' as a title. It is simply a figure of speech, a metaphor to describe the human life cycle of time and change.
There is great beauty in the changing formations of a wilted flower. I often keep wilting flowers in vases for months as I love how their shape evolves and continues to change with time. New beauty evolves. I also connect the human ageing process, albeit 'life' or a 'wilted flower' as a representation of the gathering of great wisdom and knowledge on life matters.
A wilted rose is not something to be discarded or thought of as lesser, for it's evolving beauty stands the test of time.
'Wilted Roses' is an Art passion project I am creating. I am in the process of putting together a photo artistic illustrated book called ‘Wilted Roses’.
I have gathered questions from women under 50 years old and have presented these questions to the older women over 50.
I aim to gather many interviews from the older women, and from this gathering, I will put together an eclectic mix of the most inspiring or thought-provoking answers.
There are some fantastic questions and insightful answers to date, along with a little bit of trivia fun. I have now interviewed some thirty women ranging from 95 years old to 50.
