Fade To White



I was out with a friend today, and we saw a aged lady talking to a postal carrier. She was quite tiny, white-haired, and extremely pale. He said that she looked "bleached by time," and I told him about pigment loss as we age... and other fossil facts.





He turned to me and said, "So. Are we on our way to being ghosts?




In the meantime, on your way to that fade to white.....

We lose pigment in our hair, certainly, and our entire bodies change: skin suffers loss of elasticity, bone density (hence the x-ray of the broken hip), etc. I had to laugh at Phil's answers today. First of all, when I saw that pool shot, my first thought was "Unique Alias getting whupped." When Phil explained ROFL as "old school," that was just icing on the cake.

What comes to mind is that old Blondie song, "Fade Away And Radiate."

That's the way to go!!!

that's a beautiful phrase, "bleached by time." come to think of it, my grandma gets blonder and blonder as the years go by...

The man who uttered that is always coming up with things you want to remember, he has such a unique mind.
