The Roots Begin to Change

via Daily Prompt: Roots


I remember it like it was yesterday.  Sandy blond hair blowing in the breeze outside as I played with my friends out in the sand.  Not a care in the world except to make my sand castle higher than anyone else’s.

Now though I look in the mirror and see brownish hair but wait what is that I see.  I look closer in the mirror and the roots of the hair is a strange color.  Not every hair but several.  What color is that?  I put the glasses on and try again.  I look and the roots are silver…what…wait…what happened I said out loud.  Silver, I don’t understand.  It was just yesterday that I was playing outside.  Oh no, it was like it was yesterday.

I grew up and matured as they say.  No, I like to say I gained wisdom and for every silver rooted hair is all of the wisdom stacked in my head.

Yup I will go with that!

The older I get the more I realize I want to know more, to experience more and to learn. I crave knowing what I don't know. I want to grow as a positve person and be open to others thoughts and opinions. I don't want to lose who I am but I want to enhance who I am through this journey. I love reading, crafts and old cars and trucks. I swear I could look at antique cars and collector vehicles for hours and not get bored. Family thinks I'm crazy but they love me anyway:)
