Our modern society respects the youth culture. It believes being young is beautiful, but it’s actually quite naïve and stupid in many ways. It is our responsibility to reclaim the beauty, the sacred, the holy which is characteristic of aging. We can do this simply by choosing a different perspective. It is a choice. We decide. It’s conscious for some, and then others follow unconsciously – the herd mentality. That’s how it works. So what we’ve got to do is be the ones who lead the way.
The theme of wrinkles appear often in my writing. I like the idea that they are words, sentences, stories which life has written upon our bodies – which we write ourselves upon our bodies as we live life and gain experience. I choose to celebrate them. I invite you to do the same.
