My Decision

A L O H A !
Queen Serenade by Arthur Lyman on Grooveshark

" Beauty is how you feel

 inside, and it reflects

 in your eyes.

 It is not 

something physical. "


Sophia Loren 










" There is a fountain of youth:
 it is your mind, 
your talents, the 
creativity you 
bring to your life 
and the lives 
of people you love. 
When you learn to tap 
this source, 
you will truly have 
defeated age. "


Sophia Loren 









" If you haven't cried, 
your eyes
 can't be beautiful. "

Sophia Loren 












" You have to be born
 a sex symbol. 
You don't become one. 
If you're born 
with it, 
you'll have it 
even when you're 
100 years old. "

Sophia Loren

It is my pleasure
to announce
that I have decided
to join
the Sisterhood
of women all around us
who are quietly
Older Than You Think.

Quiet, because
it's rude to flaunt.
Grateful.
Beneficent.
Mindful of 
T I M E.

It is just these
ingredients,
add a dash of genes,
a lifetime of sun avoidance,
and a heart of love
for puppies & people
(even when they scrape
one's hose)

So my admitted age
is a lie,
like the celebrities
who were adults
when I was an adolescent
who are now
"my bio age"
and growing younger.

So what do YOU
routinely lie about?

"Beauty is how you feel inside...

Then I am in deep trouble because inside I feel like what my cat just puked on the kitchen floor. No biggy, my wife and I just binged watched the first season of "Lost" on Netflix last night while drinking wine and eating cheese.

Yes, beauty IS how you feel inside. May you always feel this way!

Bob Bushell said...

Beautiful skylines and the Sophia quotes.

Willow said...

I have to say I love the fact that at my current "middle" age I have completely embraced that fun loving, creative, bouncy inquisitive inner child that had sadly been suppressed somewhere in adulthood, and was waiting to return.

Indrani said...

Those fiery red skies are stunning!
Great quotes too.

Charles Gramlich said...

Tough question. Do I lie and say, "nothing?"

TexWisGirl said...

i never lie about my age and tell it openly. i intend to claim every year i get. :) 50!

Duckbutt said...

Great quotes, and your sentiment is even more on target.

My age? Hell, I'm 69.
