Wrinkles of wisdom.

The woman in the picture is my mother. She was constantly telling me not to take her pictures as she was old and not looking presentable. That's the thing, with age comes frailty and that's all the the more beautiful about the human experience. Those wrinkles all over her face are worth for the wisdom that she has acquired for over the ages.
