Elaine Stritch was a famous theater personality.|She was still going strong well into her 80's. I just saw a film about her. How inspiring, especially since today is my 71st birthday. It is also International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It is also the day the Challenger went up in flames.
This is a more emotional day than my 70th birthday for some reason. I am still alive. That is amazing. I am so grateful. I never thought I would make it this far and still be healthy, active and viable. I agree with Elaine Stritch; it is challenging to age. Watching your body betray you. Watching local and world events. Watching and participating. And becoming more aware of the inevitable.
Life is indeed a mystery.
