As we age it takes more and more effort to look stylish. Some succeed some don’t.
Not much to say about this except I like the juxtaposition of the ages and color tones and putting the two images together messes with my mind.
Everywhere one goes ads bombard us with promises of beauty, youth, fitness and yes, even enlightenment. The truth is they are lying. This tired elderly lady sitting under the sign for a fitness class speaks to this reality much better than I.
One morning, without warning, you see an old person staring back at you in the mirror. It comes as a shock to realize that wrinkled face is yours.
I probably don’t need to say anything more.
Lord save us all from old age and broken health and a hope tree that has lost the faculty of putting out blossoms.
Old Age Is Not For Sissies
