My friend Nancy e-mailed this to me, and I thought it was interesting and lovely, so I'm sharing. It almost makes me eager to grow old!
Between 18 and 22, a woman is like Africa : half discovered, half wild, fertile and naturally beautiful.
Between 23 and 30, a woman is like Europe : well developed and open to trade, especially for someone of real value.
Between 31 and 35, a woman is like Spain : very hot, relaxed, and convinced of her own beauty.
Between 36 and 40, a woman is like Greece : gently aging but still a warm and desirable place to visit.
Between 41 and 50, a woman is like Great Britain : with a glorious and all conquering past.
Between 51 and 60, a woman is like Israel : has been through war, doesn't make the same mistakes twice, takes care of business.
Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Canada : self-preserving, but open to meeting new people.
After 70, she becomes Tibet : wildly beautiful, with a mysterious past and the wisdom of the ages, an adventurous spirit and a thirst for spiritual knowledge.
