“the wisest are the most annoyed at the loss of time.” // d. alighieri
wisdom, evidently, i have in spades – particularly today.
had i not washed that gray right out of my hair the other day, had i left my glasses on the mantle and my contacts simmering – i might’ve been forgiven for not noticing that the signs of aging have quickened their pace. i am smart enough to know that stuff won’t make the hands of time turn back, yet the ripped gift-wrap and untied ribbons do, just the tiniest bit, assuage those fears of getting long in the tooth, forgetting for a moment – that shit, i really should get my teeth checked, i’m at that age now…
