Our society is so bent on anti-aging. Products and procedures every which way we turn. And I get it. It’s often shocking to get a glimpse of my reflection. And while I haven’t (yet) gone the Botox route, I’ve been very, very tempted. Especially when society is telling me I shouldn’t show my age.

But most of us I think will agree – at our age we got a thing going on. Our “thing” IS our “age” and all the rewarding qualities that only come with it. Qualities that trump pretty much everything else. And we need to wear these well-earned badges loud and proud, not work against them.

All that said, I’m now going to contradict myself…

We must admit that there’s some degree of vanity in all of us. It’s human nature. I suspect most of us want to look good and feel good, right? And when we look good and feel good, it puts a spring in our step and more confidence in our pockets. And when we feel good, our “thing” may shine brighter.

This issue is dedicated to face and body. Whether you’ve gone this route, you’re adamantly against it, or you’re curious and on the fence like I am, there’s no judgment.
