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.
I wish I was as slim as this guy. Sadly, I am not. 🙂 I’m swimming 50 lengths (1250 metres) of our local pool 4 or 5 days a week, and I’m slowly, tediously losing weight. Yesterday I did 54 lengths, one of them butterfly. Thing is, no matter how slowly you’ve put it on, you want to lose it in 2 weeks. At my current rate, it will take me 3 years to get to my target weight! Quelle pagaille!
This pic encourages me to keep on trying. One day ….
I’m buying some of these Adidas swimshorts, to swim laps in, now that I’ve lost weight.
