    A sad reality that you show beautifully in this image. I do see more shades of gray as I age, but they make the bright colors all the more brighter.

    Your description is so very true of how the aging process causes some major changes in life style and your image speaks of this so eloquently...I just hope that I retain my mind when I get to the end of the road.
