Cameron Diaz Reveals the Privilege of Time in New Photo

The Longevity Book, by Cameron Diaz and Sandra Bark
“There’s an ideal beauty that is harder to define or understand, because it occurs not just in the body but where the body and the spirit meet and define each other.”

If you haven’t picked up your copy of the Longevity Book – ahem, why not?! – then you first saw this black and white picture yesterday when Cameron posted it on Instagram. “What a privilege to have this image that my dear friend @jeffdunas has the foresight to start creating nearly 3 decades ago, appear in the Longevity Book. I am so thankful for our longstanding (or sitting) tradition.”

Contemplating aging has a way of making us consider our youth. In order to look forward, we first look backward. We flip through old photographs and read through old letters and journals. Sometimes we feel nostalgic. Other times we feel relieved that no matter what, time keeps marching on.

Time can be kept in clocks and calendars, but if we are lucky, it can also be counted in a life well spent, full of learning, love, and laughter. Our conversation is not about anti-aging; in fact that’s a word we’ll never us. We don’t want you to live in fear of aging. Let’s reframe the way that we, as women, talk about aging.

If you’re interested in digging deeper, take some time to watch this recent conversation between Cameron and Nancy Meyers’ discussing the book.
