Bulldog with pink blanket and leash

Pretty in Pink

I’m rapidly approaching a “significant” birthday, which – no surprise – has me thinking a lot lately about the whole issue of aging.

The 16th century pamphleteer and dramatist, Thomas Nashe, said that “Beauty is but a flower / which wrinkles will devour”.

But I doubt this dog would agree. She seems to sport her wrinkles with grace, assurance and even pride. She knows that she matters and that she’s beautiful!

I love her attitude. Perhaps I’ll drink a toast to her on my birthday, and do my best to follow her noble lead!

    Wrinkles are simply memory lanes 🙂
