AGE Advanced Conversations: Reclaiming the Crone

AGE Advanced Conversations: Reclaiming the Crone

What is a crone?  If you do crossword puzzles, you will find the clue “hag.”  If you love literature and theatre, you might conjure up the three old witches in Macbeth. You will hear their croaking voices intoning, “Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble” as they cackle over their cauldron of mischief.  The Google dictionary says a crone is an old woman who is thin and ugly.
