Head, Spine, Tail, Day 24
I am fascinated by the the terminology used for the parts of a book and their reference to the body-head, spine, tail, footnote, and headnote. I see my body as a story that is in the process of being written. As the lines on my hands and face deepen I am reminded of this evolving story. As much as aging and watching my body change can be disconcerting I need to remind myself that this is just part of life's process. If my body doesn't age then my story has come to its end.
