immortal longings in me.
- Shakespeare, "Antony and Cleopatra"
I have in me:
An 88-year-old Jewish woman who plays mahjong and saves her tea bags and knits and says things like "six to one, half-dozen to the other" and "whippersnapper" and "Lord willing and the creek don't rise..." (okay, maybe she's not Jewish.)
A 62-year-old hippie who wears multiple loud floral prints at the same time, wears too much jewelry, talks about composting too much, and throws an unforgettable garden party.
A ten-year-old book-swallowing nerd. Although that's really just the same as the current 26-year-old nerd.
What's funny is, most days I don't feel the age that I am.
