Aging Like Fine Wine?


Seeing these cherries slowly getting sweeter made me think about aging. Is it a threat? Because society sure makes us think it is. Why else would women do almost anything to not loose their youth? Why would be they be so preoccupied by every wrinkle or white hair? It's almost funny if you come to think about it. Who sets the standards anyawy, who says only young means beautiful?

It's the other way around with clothes. They are more appreciated if more years have passed upon them. Sure, they are called vintage but that's just another word for old. Why not appreciate the signs of aging the same way it's done with clothes from other decades?

Years passing by should be looked at with gratitude, sweetened as those cherries in the jar. And whilst enjoying a cup of brandy.

Sweet treats,
Daiane

  1. My Nann turned 70 this year and she is so beautiful and glamorous that I actually don't mind the idea of aging too much. (My poor mum looks the same age, sh;es 20 years younger and they look like sisters with my mum being the OLDER sister)

    I think it depends on how you age - if you end up like the plastic mum from mean girls it's just wrong, but if you adapt your style and do it gracefully i think getting older can be really beautiful.
