“People grow old only by deserting their ideals, Macarthur had written. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are you young. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, are you grown old. And then, indeed as the ballad says, you just fade away.”

Kind Regards

    Love the words as well as this gorgeous image. They work so well together. Not long before my mother’s death, she told me that although her body was failing her, inside she still felt like a seventeen year old girl full of curiosity and fascination about life, joy and energy. I try to live like that even though I can’t help but fear a bit of despair and a fair amount of nostalgia every time I look in the mirror or see an old photo and realize my age. Still, even though I can hear death’s drums moving ever closer, they are still distant and I still hopefully have many years to live so why not make the best of them?!
