My mom is enjoying post-retirement by doing what she loves best: writing. Friday, she posted a very thought-provoking blog about seniors and invisibility.
This is my wonderful mom:
She's noticed a phenomenon that happens as you get older. You become invisible. Where once you inspired looks like this...
You now blend into the crowd.
I don't think it's an age thing. I think there are only a certain percentage of people who stand out, depending on the person doing the looking. Think about it. When you walk into a restaurant, which people get your attention?
A beautiful woman in bright clothing?
Someone with an unusual hair color?
Or the young people?
Are most of us invisible?
Be sure to weigh in over on my mom's blog!
