|Fountain of Youth by Lucas Cranach the Elder|
Of course, people have been searching for the fountain of youth for time immemorial. Even though realizing that's not a reality, some people go to great lengths to "appear" youthful.
You know, taking care of yourself and looking the best you can is admirable.
But when did age become such a bad thing? So bad that you have to, or are compelled to, "defy" it? At one time, age was respected and admired. It meant wisdom. You earned your wrinkles.
Plastic surgeons and pharmaceuticals are making a bundle because we're not comfortable in our own skin.
I don't mind saying that I really don't care about my wrinkles! Sure, I wouldn't mind looking youthful again, but I don't want to go back. It's just not that important to me.
Am I a freak of nature because I don't care?
How do you all feel about winkles and age-defying beauty products?
