    Lately I'm seeing a lot more of the Warrior in the mirror... life seems to call for more than kitty cats most days. :)

    I picture myself as being much younger than I am. I don't think it's a matter of vanity really, because I have never pictured myself as being particularly handsome, but I don't think of myself as being nearly sixty-five.

    I think I'm much more "handsomer" at 65 than I was at any other age in my life.:D Now if this old body could just keep up with the rest of me. :)

    Because of the florescent lighting I see a white haired, blue veined monster staring staring back at me, replete with acne rosacea and scars from recently removed basal cell cancers. I'm gonna have to change that damn lighting.

    The only advise I can give is, don't look in the mirror wearing reading glasses :eek: :p

    A family get together this past weekend. A lot of photos were taken. When I look in the mirror, I think, 'Not bad for an old man.' When I look at one of those photos taken of me, I think it's somebody else, hope it's somebody else.

    When I look in the mirror now, I like what I see much more than what I saw in my youth. My face shows the journey I've been traveling. When I was young most people made the assumption that my life was easy because I was pretty. For some reason people thought that made dealing with the world less challenging than it was for others.

    Now I feel that people don't look at my outer shell so much, and they are able to see who I really am. They hear me instead of just seeing me. :rolleyes:
