There really is something unnerving, almost inhuman, about a face-or a life-undecorated by wrinkles. It would be like gazing at someone’s palm and seeing not a line upon it. Not a life line, not a love line, not a past or future line. Just blankness. I honor your insightful commentary on wrinkles and their symbolism and significance in our lives.
