Sculptures Around Town (and Overdoing the Quest for Youth)

Every time I walk past this sculpture, I wonder whose idea it was to repaint it. For a long time it the gilding was chipped and faded. For me it had much more charm showing its age.

So too, I think, with humans. It is great to feel and look youthful naturally because of proper care of health, and quite another to disfigure ourselves and our looks with surgery and treatment seeking always to look like we have not fully lived out some life.

By all means, seek to remain vibrant and supple, but do please also honor the signs of experience.
