"Turning Gray..."

...and then snowy white...
fiddling around a bit with tonal values in my
2010 Zen Journal....(and Microsoft Editor.)
That actually reminds me...
I think I may need to make a salon appointment
later this week. :)

Gray hairs
are signs of wisdom if you hold your tongue.
and they are but hairs,
in the young.”
Rabindranath Tagore
Indian Poet, Playwright and Essayist,
Won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913,

I love, love, love the white on black. It looks like a pristine snowflake to me. Beautiful. I've got some of that gray too, I've decided not to color it but to just enjoy it.....(ps I don't always enjoy it!)

I have an almost totally white head of hair. I can't seem to keep my yap shut at the right times though. Ha.. I like this drawing. It looks like a doily to me. Fine and lacy.

Oh yes, a lace doily indeed! And a beauty ;)

I never noticed I was going grey until I went from highlighted blonde to auburn! I think some greys look great. The wiry salt and pepper can be too aging on some. I love soft white hair. Still, I say embrace it! Well, I do use a bit of Nice & Easy for my red though!! :P
