Last week I began a new residency at School 33. A second grader asked me how old I was. This is the conversation:
"M.J., How old are you?"
"120 years old."
Really? you are 120?"
" Yep. How do I look?"
"You look good, Like 36."
"I do! That's wonderful. 36, really."
"God must have blessed you with such a long life."
" Why yes--yes he has."
Snowstorm on Friday, 2/8/2013, shutdown Rochester.
I stayed home and enjoyed the weather from the inside. It was a quiet weekend.
Made a pot of soul stirring soup.
Life is good.
