I’ve always been a fan of yours. Maybe it because we share first names—though mine lacks the elegant last syllable, ages—, you are two years my senior which is pretty close, and a home town—Manhattan. Because of this, I’ve always followed your career and personal life closely.
Lately you’ve been in the headlines, yet again because President Obama has appointed her the US ambassador to Japan. Congratulations. I’m sure you’ll do a great job.
I’m glad you’re making the strech, trying something new at a point in life when others are looking at the finish line. That shows that you’ve got spunk!. But what I’m happiest about is that you are proud to be fifty six and you show it.
In our youth crazed world it isn’t often that we see an indisputably handsome woman whose glowing appearance honors the passage of time. You are that woman, Caroline.
Lets be real. You aren’t a youngster. but you keep fit, slim, , as if you start your days off at the gym or with a trainer which is a great example for the rest of us, the ageing boomers. . Alright,your hair is dyed but that is just normal. About 95 per cent of the female population use hair dye. Only a select handful can pull off the look of those Eileen Fisher models with their thick flowing white manes.
What is really cool about you Caroline is your face. It is full of lines —along your chin, around your eyes and mouth, and on your forehead. For some reason your lines tend to be angular mostly moving in a vertical directions without much criss crossing. Maybe that’s a facet of your straight talking, straight thinking personality .
For this alone, I’ve got to say Atta girl Caroline. Even in my circles— –none of my friends are ambassadors, Botox has made considerable headway. It’s a secret. Most botox users would sooner share the details of their psychotherapy than admit to taking the treatment, but it’s happening all around. Didn’t you ever wonder about those inexplicably smooth skinned women with college age grandchildren? Is that due to amazing genes or a chemical which is not coincidentally fashioned fron the same stuff that causes botulism.
Botox doesn’t come cheap. The most basic series of injections can run as high to $1000 and the shots must be topped up every few months or the wrinkles will come back Wouldn’t that money be put to better use socked into retirement savings or given to the poor.
Botox has side effects mostly colds and flu and other respiratory problems but who in their right mind would want to give themselves a cold?
Caroline, you can’t imagine how thrilled I am that you have said no this ridiculous attempt to foist the Barbie dolls forever twenty-one look onto all women. It’s wonderful to see that you wearing the markings of a difficult but also rich life
As you are married to a member of the tribe you probably know that that in Jewish thinking old people are considered the wise ones and youngsters the fools. The Hebrew word “na’ar” which means youth also means fool, hence the Yiddish word na’arishkeit, or Tomfoolery. The Vilna Gaon teaches that the face of old age tells us that life is short and must be lived well.I tip my sheitel to you, Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg for carrying this message to the rest of us. .
