    Right on, man! It’s good that you like what you have. A lot of people struggle with that, including me. I started finding grey hairs at 18 and by the time I was in my 30s I was almost totally grey. It screwed with my head a little bit – every time I’d walk by a mirror I’d get a little shock: who’s that old fucker following me… oh wait. : ( I actually went through a 5 or 6 year phase where I dyed it back to my original color, but that was a pain in the ass to maintain and I got less and less comfortable with having to do it. So earlier this year, I let it grow out to the steel grey it has now become. I can’t say as I’m more comfortable with it, but sooner or later I have to get used to the fact that I’m becoming an old dude. Might as well get started. lol

      N8! Ya old bastard! How are ya?!?!

      The funny thing about that is, gray is a very distinguishing color, especially when it’s a full head of gray. I think somewhere along the line, hair become a symbol for everything we think is beautiful about ourselves. Instead of gray hair meaning time and wisdom (which is beautiful in and of itself), it became a sign of decrepit old age…which it isn’t.

      Kinda weird really. You should learn to love it and embrace. Your hair should not be that stranger that’s just…there and you tolerate em. It should be the good friend that let’s other people know that you’re comfortable with who you are…if you see what I’m trying to say with these hobbled metaphors.
