Have you read the article by Anne Lamott in the latest issue of Oprah magazine? Love love love Anne Lamott. This article is about aging and beauty. It's honest, insightful, clever and laugh-out-loud funny. If you're not familiar with Lamott, start with this article, then move on to Traveling Mercies and Plan B. (Steer away from the novels.)
