The woman in the sunglasses — the author, that is! — is absolutely 57 years old. I know ’cause that’s me. The woman in the photo used to illustrate the piece is of an unknown age. I chose that photo as a visual representation of the overall theme: getting older. I suspect she blew past 57 a long time ago :)
