Why does ‘beauty’ even have to relate to age or be in the same sentence as it? Why would someone who successfully defies age, be hailed a star or be amazing and fabulous? If Mirren lived a ‘face-naked’ life, would she still be the new face of L'Oreal?
Because I was dealing with my own complex feelings I hadn’t stopped to consider what my Dad was going through or how he was projecting a desire for his youngest daughter to remain the perfect (and very youthful) little Asian girl with Blue/Black hair so he could remain the younger, proud parent. At the same time she was projecting back her desire to not only ‘ancestrally’ break that tradition right there in his face but dare to visibly grow old and have him witness the transition. This was rich material to work with and worth a good chew; still chewing!
