Male beauty

How beautiful young men can be!  Old men like me are, well, not beautiful :-).  We may be wiser and kinder (actually, I think I’m actually grumpier than I was when I was young) but our hair is grey, our face lined, and every year our body succumbs a bit more to gravity.  Am I a better person than I was at 25?  Yes.  At least I hope so.  Am I as good looking?  No.  I know so.  But I wouldn’t change anything.  Except my sore knees!  Understanding myself and those around me is worth every wrinkle, every grey hair, every unwanted kilo.
