Day 17: Hair and skin

I keep dreaming of hairdressers

Turn back the clock!

At least,

Look at what you are doing

Or not doing

A year now

I have chosen to



Another dream

Said “your age is trying to speak to you

How can you hear if you keep hiding it?”

My tattoo

My 40th birthday present

Sits now on slowly wrinking wrist

Some days

I have hands just like


Wisdom is speaking

To me,

Not anyone else

My body

My timeline

My story

I haven’t read a story this good

For many



And I am learning to listen
