"My partner gave me the book "50 Things To Do When You Turn Fifty" for my birthday. I am enjoying reading it. So far I like all the articles except for one. Written by a plastic surgeon, it recommends having plastic surgery to retain your looks. Excuse me, what happened to ageing gracefully? I can't imagine deliberately going under the knive just to remain looking young. I like the wrinkles and wisdom that shows on older faces that isn't there in the young. Most young look unformed, immature and almost without personality at times, whereas those who have lived for a few more decades have real character in their faces. If you take away that character what does that say about the person?" I whisper.

Are you listening?
