Father Time

Looking at photos in my parents guest room had me thinking there’s only one escape from Father Time and that’s an early death. I thought this as I watched a PBS special that featured recording acts in their earlier years and what they look like today performing at an “oldies” concert. Time has a remarkable effect on the human body. Looking at a photo I tried to remember being 17 years old and how old my parents seemed to me at the time. I now recognize that how we see ourselves is quite different than how we actually look to the world. I’m convinced that it takes a little while to have the mirror and our personal picture of ourselves synchronize. So let’s enjoy today because the years are going by so fast and we don’t have much control over how we age.
