Having said all of that, I will confess that my profile picture is four years old, and I chose it because I thought it made me look younger. It doesn’t frighten me, though, to tell you that I’ll be 50 in four years. I look more like my mother with every passing year, and that is a gift more powerful than I could have imagined when I was a girl.
I hope my wrinkles, as they accumulate, will inspire some young person to think that it wouldn’t be so bad to look like me some day.
Television is about entertainment; the real truths come from real experiences. I’m ready for age because of all it will teach me.
