Aging gracefully

It’s always fascinating to look at tree trunks and notice all of their lines and history. They age so gracefully while we shun at the idea of getting a wrinkle. Perhaps if we tried to emulate their longevity, we wouldn’t be so obsessed with youth and beauty. Just found out today my neighbor has breast cancer. Sucks as she worked all her life to maybe end it this way. I hate the way I take mine for granted. Sketching daily reminds me that perhaps I need to savor the moment and the sketches are a little memento reminding me I am not that insignificant after all…
