"To Age Is A Privilege"


I stopped Joyce on the Upper West Side and asked her to share some of her style secrets.Joyce had some great advice, she said,"Style is about the right jewelry, the right know-how,the right neckline, and above all the right attitude." I think its important to share the ages of my subjects whenever possible, so I asked Joyce if she minded telling me how old she is. She replied, "Of course not. To age is a privilege, I am 79 years old."

How true is that?? We worry so much about "getting old" that we don't stop to appreciate how lucky we are to have that privilege. There are many who don't get to grow old, and we should be thankful for the opportunity. Thanks for the excellent reminder!

I agree . . the right neckline and the right attitude are key!

I'd love to look like such a coquette-and look as amazing as Joyce does-when I'm 79!

Thanks for the inspiration!

I love how so many of the ladies you photograph do their makeup! You can tell they spend a fair bit time on it each day, and choose their products carefully. The way you photograph them tends to indicate that you, too, are impressed by their skills -- many of which come with age and experience!

I want to be Joyce when I'm 79! Wait. Forget 79 - I want to be Joyce NOW! She is gorgeous and so stylish.

Janis said...

What a lovely, elegant woman.

I remember having a similar conversation with my cardiologist one time. We were talking about aging, and he said a bit ruefully, "We all get old."

I added, "If we're lucky."

He smiled. :-) He's got 25 years on me easy, and he smiled!

deborah said...

I couldn't agree more with Joyce. Having lost so many dear to me, who never lived to be "old", I am grateful for each birthday.
Clearly Joyce's beauty is more than skin deep!

vee said...

well joyce, would you also say that age is a privilege without the facelifts you´ve had?

aging sucks, so all of us have to find sooner or later the right attitude, but.. pleeease, not that hypocritical way.

Age is just a number. You're only as old as you believe you are and never let others discourage you

Brant said...

Eeek Vee! It takes courage to have face lifts and maybe Joyce likes to look how she feels. I do. I think Joyce is beautiful and don't care what work she has committed herself to; it is a privilege to admire her and I like her spirit.
