"The closing years of life are like the end of a masquerade party, when the masks are dropped." Cesare Pavese
I have observed that the above quote fits a lot of people - maybe that's why some elderly people are labeled eccentric
.People who know me well will probably tell you that I've never been one to wear a mask. I'm as "natural" and "honest" as one can be. While I do try to be tactful and kind for the most part my motto in life is not to wear a mask.
