Insightful, Dec 1, 2014
by Sandi O

"What an insightful, honest, and most of all truthful assessment of what happens both internally and externally as we age. And we ALL will age and no pharmaceutical drug or cream can prevent it. It is a profound message of empathy, compassion, and the value of treating yourself and others with dignity and respect till the last breath. After all: what goes around comes around."
