When I Grow Up...

The pixels are peculiar but the spirit comes through--this is how I hope to be in another ten years--or right now for that matter. This photo is in a gigantic coffee table book of women photographed by Richard Avedon which is in stock at the bookstore where I work, and when I'm feeling depressed over the aging process, I look at Marguerite Duras.

You can't see her face clearly here but she is so plainly in love with life---this is a woman who doesn't let her wrinkles get in the way of a good time.

I loved that picture even before you said who it is. Hooray for those who have a lust for life!!
