Splattered with colored lichen and scarred by peeling bark, this tree looks to be 'worse for wear'...and yet, it shows so much character and offers so many crevices to explore. In addition, it still serves as a home for a number of epiphytes. Thus, its value remains high in my mind! Like many 'old' things in the cycle of life, it continues to play an important role and to significantly contribute to its environs.

And, so with our own - have you noticed how beautiful wrinkles really are? have you considered how age spots really add character? Think about the experience and support that older people bring to our world, be it financial, innovative, or otherwise - they provide a historical perspective from a personal point of view that cannot be replaced. A treasure to behold. Freedom Park, Naples, FL
