The only recent photo
For these birthdays, I'm just glad to have made it this far. As I said to a ninety-six year old woman the other day, it's an honor to grow old, despite the misconceptionds the youth culture foists upon us. Not everybody makes it. Not everybody has had the benefit of decades. Complain though we may at all the idignities of failing this and failing that, our bodies have taken us through the years. Give them a break without breaking them.
I hope younger women will lose the fear of ageing, to know the years ahead are rich and varied. Being ageless is about energy not wrinkles.
