Edward Sharpe and being 104
My great-uncle Lloyd Hunsaker died this week. He was 104 years old. His secret was to keep moving, working. He was a real do-it-yourself-er! When I saw him in November I asked if he was still getting up at 5am to do his yardwork. He said, “well, of course!” His obituary reads like it happened over 2 lifetimes! He’s the last of that generation. My mom was so sad, Uncle Lloyd represented an era that helped shape her. People that loved her as a kid and seemed like they’d always be there. I am lucky to still have my grandma (featured here). I don’t care if I live to be over 100, I just want all my days to count. I want to feel good and be good!
It’s like summer outside, gorgeous! On my beach walk today I listened to the new Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Man, they’ve done it again. LOVE the song Man on Fire! Music is really a gift, isn’t it? So go, have a GREAT weekend, feel good and be good! Thanks for stopping by! kimi.
