I just found a grey hair growing out of my ear! It’s the beginning of the end.

My brother is a couple of years older than me and has gone half grey. I only have a few grey hairs.

Yes, time catches up with us all, that is why it is important to do the things that matter.

I could've written that and I am at least 10 years older than you (stopped keeping check years ago). You still have time to turn things around. :)

I started going gray at 21 now my hair is about half gray. I have some really neato gray hairs in my beard. My beard I think is my best feature. Getting long now, probably 3-4 inches long.

With age comes knowledge, and knowledge comes wisdom, and wisdom comes peace. Or so the old chinese philosophers say.So stick around and embrace the change!

I worry that I may get old one day - and then I shall have to stop going to concerts and festivals or travelling to various countries, I may even stop getting attention from ladies (to be honest, I'm surprised that hasn't happened already!) or find myself unable to do day-long hikes and so forth. I guess I'm lucky that I'm only 56 years old (and those who are worried about grey hairs, I shaved my head for charity when I was 40 and I got used to it like that - although if I do let it grow back, there's quite a lot of grey!).
