"Here's my dilemma: I've gone grey. There are those who regard this as a sort of badge of honor for waddling through the decades I've managed to survive. They say it is what has been earned from simply living for a period of time that extends beyond the ability of my body to produce whatever it is the makes your hair not look like a corpse. And I'm not entirely in disagreement with that. Getting to wherever I am now was not all that easy. Suffering was involved and if it shows on top of my head. It happens.
Meanwhile, there feels like an "I-give-up" mentality to going with the grey. I'm old. I'm done. The End.
So I feel caught between the pull to let nature take its course and the idea that maybe if I tossed a little color in the mix I might feel a bit less played-out.
Ross -- I know you mentioned that the flecks of gray in your hair helped you feel a bit closer to your father. (My father, who died when I was in college, was bald, so I don't want to feel that close).
Could some color help spark a new energy for me, or should I be proud of the 'experience' that shows on my head? Please weigh in with your thoughts."
