Flashback Friday

I remember when I looked like this, it was only yesterday.  But now when I have to look in a mirror, it lies.  It shows gray and wrinkles and weariness.  The smiles, now, carry the burden of time and experience.  The smile in the picture above is new, unknowing, unaware. There's a certain cockiness that it hasn't earned.  Too much time in a sheltered cocoon - protected from the onslaught of living.  But that would change, as it should and must.  Living has its own story to engrave on that youthful smile.
