Flawed

The passage of time marks us all. We droop. We sag. We wrinkle. We lose the luster of youth. We are no longer pretty. But what we gain is character. We attain a curious kind of beauty.

I can never pass a cracked sidewalk or peeling paint without wanting to take a picture.

  4. I agree! We earned all the droops and sags and should be proud of them. Love the photo, lots of character.

  7. I love the color. I love how it must have faded over time to that soft green. Lovely contrast with the brick.
