"I’ve enjoyed every age I’ve been, and each has had its own individual merit. Every laugh line, every scar, is a badge I wear to show I’ve been present, the inner rings of my personal tree trunk that I display proudly for all to see. Nowadays, I don’t want a ‘perfect’ face and body; I want to wear the life I’ve lived.”  - Pat Benatar

From my post reflecting on the process of aging, today on Myth & Moor.

The “fairy godmother” painting above is by English artist Brian Froud; the tree figure above is by Irish sculptor Fidelma Massey.
