Then thickets of dark-chocolate brown, so thick that my mother fretted and cried along with me as she tried to remove the tangles. When the sun shone, there was auburn. In time, the white started to slip in like a visitor who came in with the moon, and stayed on, leaving a light silvery halo around my face as I looked into the peeling silver mirror in the morning light. The salt has now gently kissed my brow

Our mothers didn’t teach us how to act and feel with grey hair and wrinkles. They never talked about how the transition felt. Do the rules change? Do people’s reaction to us change when white starts to show? Is that the end of our sexual attractiveness and the beginning of old age and decrepitude? In any case, I’ve decided to take the leap and blue is my theme color (to match my eyes). This is my salt and pepper

There are no traces of that today, and the church we see now was tucked in to the 9th-century ramparts by the Counts of Chartres, and later renovated to low Gothic style in the 14th century.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #chartres#chartrescathedral#chartrescathedralenotredame
