Hey Wendy I really like this. Green is nice in hair, I've been thinking
about it myself. But I have the opposite problem. I decided to stop
hennaing my hair (I've done it for years because I like red and didn't have
a permanent job). Now I have "tenure" and so I decided to let my white hair
surface. I've gotten lots of negative feedback from some of my fellows who
don't like it at all. Somehow I think the kids like it. I like it too. I
think. Guess our social norms are pretty narrow eh? Peggy
