To Triumph

A   L   O   H   A  !

" Passion 
rebuilds the world
 for the youth.
 It makes all things
 alive
 and significant. "

Ralph Waldo Emerson 











" One of the stereotypes
 I see breaking
 is the idea of aging
 and older women
 not being beautiful. "

 Annie Leibovitz 












" To keep the heart unwrinkled,
 to be hopeful, kindly,
 cheerful, reverent-
-that is to triumph 
over old age. "

Thomas Bailey Aldrich

That all may be true but you would still never see my pasty white legs in shorts! Wednesday is my favorite day, I get to go to 1stgrade again and hang out with the girls and read with them.

Nie trzeba myśleć, że się już jest starszym i dalej przez życie iść z pasją. Pozdrawiam.
You do not have to think that he is older now and then to go through life with a passion. Yours.

Oh yes, unwrinkled hearts! My favorite photo here, the group (pasty white legs and all!) hahaha, but mostly because they are all out living life- and not a cell phone in sight! Hooray, for man!

I have a friend who is a descendant of Emerson. Fun to think of her as I read your blog. Whole thing is wonderful as ever.
