Shine on, Silver Moon!

Bette Davies once quipped:  “Old age is no place for sissies.”

She was right.

So this is what it’s like to get old…

    Old age is not for sissies BUT for flaming queens who LOVE life !

    You can be a sissy and still traverse old age successfully, which is to say, happily… until the ineluctable, inexorable end. To do that, you just need to have a reason to get up in the morning. They say that all we need in life are the three “somes”… something to do, someone to love, and something to look forward to. I personally think the something to look forward to is the most critical one.

    But if you’ve got those, and a reasonable modicum of health (which is, for the most part, more within your control than you think), then old age just becomes another exciting adventure on your way to the mysterious “eternity” you spoke of in another post.

    Days ago, I chanced upon somebody known here in our place, a lady to the manor born, so to speak, and she was married to a cousin. Her facebook profile showed a picture of herself..right and true will all her wrinkles, eye bags and a not so fine skin. Her face reflecting the real age of a woman in her mid-sixties. But I was drawn to it by the sheer beauty of her face, candid, regal, and the kind eyes reflecting her inner self. In other words her face projected a profound and alluring vision. So, inner beauty does it all when the face loses its youthful prettiness…
