Alternate Reality

Somewhere, in a parallel universe, Cher is aging naturally.

It struck me, as I gazed on the technological monument that is her face, that we will never know how she might have looked. She had good bone structure. Who knows what her heredity might have done for or to her? There are many ways to defy age. The course she chose was just one.

It's too late now. Even if she let it all go from here, it can't possibly just slump gracefully. Things have been moved too far from their natural trajectory.

Anybody can be whatever they can afford to be. I just wondered, while I was watching her in a film, what might have been.
