going grey

I found a grey hair on my head tonight when I was getting ready to go to bed. I have one of those magnifying mirrors that lets you see every pore you never new you had.

At first I was shocked,I cant have a grey hair I thought I'm too young. Then I took a second look...yup there was another one, then another, maybe 1/2 a dozen total.

Wow I must be under a lot of stress to have that many grey hairs just pop up over night,who was I going to blame George Bush, the economy, the tax man, ... wait a minute how long have they been there, a week, a month, 6 months?

Have been too busy with life to notice that I, I had grey hairs. It made me think about my friend Helen, she is beautiful, intelligent, funny, easy going, adventurous, creative, out going, social, happy, and she has an entire head full of the most gorgeous shade of grey hair.....and I smiled, that maybe I was little bit more like her now.

Uh, jenny, i have been collecting grey hairs (or as i like to say "clear" hairs, since they have no pigment)since i turned 23. I keep them in a small vintage medicine jar until i can think of a creative art project to do with them like the artist Melanie Bilenker:
