Weathered wooden pilings and equally worn rope stand solid..despite their age, they remain strong. Though this one is merely for show, there are others nearby still functional, as well.

Clearly our (so-called Western) focus on youth culture has diminished the powers of age. Many older adults strive to re-create their younger years...keeping plastic surgeons in business! Others tend to acquiesce with a submissive nod. Rarely, they take a stand establishing their time-honored sage and wisdom. Despite the devaluation, the strength remains...sometimes, being tapped for that function. 12th Ave S & 7th St, Naples, FL

  1. As someone who is up there age-wise, I am trying to assert my wisdom and strength :-) No botox or dyes - just me au naturel.But most my age are relying on a variety of methods to disguise the marks of time.
