I worked with tribal people in Central Australia in the late 1970s when I was in my thirties Curtis and white hair was definitely an advantage.

Unfortunately I didn't start to sprout white follicles, top or bottom, until my late sixties when they aren't much use.

I'm only 46 yet somehow I've ended up being able to cultivate an impressively sized and appropriately grey lapun gras wisket.

While the hair on my head is yet dark and thick, this beard - and a flair for gravitas, combined with a (ever increasingly hard to maintain) muscular athleticism - has earned me the the moniker of strongpla lapun.

Perceptions, in the land of a thousand contradictions, can be everything and while I don't feel I fully deserve the label, I certainly work it as hard as I can.

It does make it easy to gain and retain the attention of the youngpla men na meri that I train.
