Same person, same pose, same month, but the top one is 1971 and the bottom one was today. 38 years apart. Have to say I don't look overburdened by cares in the 1971 photo, but I couldn't see the dark days that lay in the future. Just as well.
I do wonder whether those 38 years were well spent, wisely used, or whether I simply trod water, marked time, until the real business of my life could begin. The bottom photo suggests that the real business is now well in hand, wouldn't you say, despite the unkempt appearance. (I'd been tidying up the garden, and was waiting for the mower man to appear, so that I could pay him before having a shower and washing my hair)
