Ageing…is somewhat like the gradual onset of winter. During the spring and summer months you sort of dread the idea of it being freezing cold later in the year. But gradually the days start getting shorter, and the winds start getting a little colder. And little by little your wardrobe starts getting heavier and before you know it, you’re walking through the snow every day. But by then…you’re used to it already.
I had to put on a hoodie when I went downstairs for a smoke just now. I would have groaned at the idea during the summer, but once I was outside I guess it wasn’t so bad.
My raven hair is starting to show a couple of white strands. And it is starting to get cold out there.
