As a male approaching my 87th birthday, I would like to make a comment. While it's true that the exterior beauty of youth does fade away, I have found that the inner beauty of some of my contemporaries lives on, and while not the same as the flame of youth, it is not a beauty to be ignored.

From the time we're born until very old age, the definition of beauty changes through the years. A beautiful 20 year old is different than a beautiful 40 or 60 or 80 year old. And yes, there is beauty at every age.

I feel sorry for people who constantly reach backward thinking that the only "good" beauty is what they had when they were in their teens or twenties. How sad for them, and how stupid. Nothing looks worse than a beautiful woman in her 40's to 60's trying to pretend she's in her 20's - mainly because it's soooo obvious and artificial.

As for me I can't be bothered to pine for earlier years - years that I didn't like too much anyway. I just try to take care of me so I can keep going (like Goomp) and enjoying life. What a waste of energy to try and go backward in time... It's way too much trouble. *grin*

Goomp and Teresa: Thanks. :)
