Image from Youth

Frogs and Ravens discusses how she imagines she will look at the other end of her career. Hee! Well from one of those who is . . . . Remember this was back before the days of trimness, and fitness when I got the image of being a Pickwick. The sort of avuncular image was quite appealing, with the vague absent-mindedness and the slightly disarrayed garb.

So, as they say, here I are. Not quite that stout, wearing multifocal rather than thin reading glasses (though I had a set once) and somewhat crumpled, and definitely absent-minded. More aloof than I would have liked to be and perhaps not as kindly as my early image of myself. Oh, and a little more hair than the good gentleman.
