Do you look in the mirror?

I remember a conversation when I was in my 40s with my mom (in her 60ss) and my grandmother, Nan (in her 80s). Nan said she had stopped looking in the mirror because she couldn’t reconcile who she was on the inside with who she saw in the mirror. My mom admitted that she was on her way to that, and I probably nodded but wasn’t there yet.

But now that I’m in my 60s, I understand more fully what Nan was saying. I tend to skim the mirror, without paying too much attention to the details of my reflection, which is why this funny made me laugh…

There are days when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror late in the day and am surprised to find that my hair has been living a life of its own on my head. Maybe I don’t pay attention to the mirror because I work at home most of the time but honestly, if you see me with lipstick on my eyebrows, please do let me know :-).
