On Why I Color My Hair

I’m somewhere in the middle of my life, not ready to go grey or take it easy yet.

I’ve had a couple odd encounters with friends who were surprised that I color my premature gray hair to brown (the color I was born with) and these same friends were not shy about saying so.

First to clarify ‘premature’. One official definition of premature is: Occurring or done before the usual or proper time; too early.
