"Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe" ~ Neil Gaiman (A Game of You)

Great fun to see these the first one. Turning 63 this year has given me a bit of freedom in turning older and wearing my years! Still here...still aging...still grateful....

Ahh. I loved the old woman, the soldier and the teenage girls the best. You're right ~ THIS is beauty!

Renee -- I think the life etched into her face is beautiful. Much more interesting and compelling than any super model.

ali -- Those might be my favorites, too. I love the pure joy in those girls' faces.

K.C. -- Thanks!

Mercy -- Thank you. I'm looking forward to your posts, as well. :)

Lovely photos!

The third one got me all teared up as it brought back to my memory all the funeral I took part of in the military as part of the Honor Guard. That one photo was really powerful for me.

Thanks for sharing these photos with us. It was a nice change.
