|New leaves, old skin|
But humans are stuck with the same old skin.
It was thick, and now it's thin.
I have no idea how I got that scratch. Maybe I brushed against a blade of grass?
Half full, half full ...
OK, we older people are just more sensitive. We bleed for the ills of the world. That's not a scratch, it's stigmata.
Not very convincing, I fear.
Note to self: wear gloves and long sleeves when gardening.
