It takes 4 to 6 weeks to completely shed your skin, according to the scientists, to make your largest organ renewed. We never notice it sloughing off flake by flake and yet, tomorrow when you glance down at your hands there may be something new and age spot perhaps or a callous you hadn't noticed before. And yet our new skin remembers the favorite textures, the difference between hot and cold, the pleasures of touch. Some things it remembers better than others, some scars are there forever, while colors of a loved tattoo begin to fade. And each cycle of renewal brings with it - age. Thinning or thickening, hanging, flapping, wrinkled age.
