aging

I am hoping what was said 
of Teresa of Avila
might one day be true of me...
I have let my hair grow
(maybe for the last time in my life)
to the point I can wear it
pulled back off my face.
My "jury" is still out on this style,
but I haven't given up yet.

    1. It's my desire, Lorraine. I thought this description such a worthy goal as I near the 70 mark!

  3. Lovely.
    I vascillate between keeping my hair shorter and then letting it grow. Right now, it is at the “shorter” stage. Who knows in several months....
    Hugs and love,
    J.

  4. Hair is a tricky thing over 60. I would like to try pulled back too, but don't have the patience to grow it out.

    1. It just kind of happened for me. The photo isn't the best, but the style sis growing on me--,no pun intended.😊

  5. I'm in a long hair phase, not all that common in women over 50! I think you look lovely (and I know you weren't fishing, but women seem to compliment each other so infrequently). Hope you are well!

  6. "that beauty is a reflection of God Himself"...that pretty much sums it up. Ah, what to do with hair...I let mine grow to the center of my back, decided it was too thin/skimpy and gradually had it whacked off to a manageable and slightly more attractive modified pixie. At seventy-one, I have hair migrating from my head to my chin...arghh... Hope you are well...

  7. Lovely, I tried growing my hair longer a few years back, but couldn't wait through the odd stage, so I cut it! Beauty is truly from within that shines forth from us to others. My DH often tells of a 5th grade teacher who was not pretty to others, but because of her inner strength and beauty, he thought she was so beautiful!
    Blessings,
    Sue

    1. I don't know how much lilong I'll go. It's shoulder length now....and I know women like you describe. (Doubtful they would acknowledge their own beauty....)
