An Onion

A friend recently told me that he is very much like an onion. I was quite confused by that statement so he explained the comparison. The outside of an onion is usually dry, and not very attractive, but as the layers are peeled away the core is quite juicy and attractive. He went on to say that as he has aged the skin on his face has become wrinkled and dry, but the spirit and zest for life has never been more alive. Age need not diminish the value of one’s life, and like the onion the outer appearance is merely a shadow of the true beauty of what lies beneath.
