It's not so much age before beauty as the fact that beauty comes before, within and beyond age.....

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is just that women have been taught for a very long time that over a certain age and once they look a certain way they are not beautiful.

This woman is beautiful because she rejoices in her being and that is beyond looks. I remember years ago in India seeing a woman with similar joy in herself. She was Italian, probably in her sixties or seventies or older and she had the most incredibly wrinkled tanned skin - much time int he sun. I was in awe of her courage to wear the skimpy dress that she did and her wrinkled skin was like dark velvet and looked utterly amazing.

To many in the world she would have been seen as ugly but in truth, she reflected real beauty because she was a demonstration of joyful being with a light from within - that is true beauty at any age. Male or female.
