She prides in her age, seventy.
The world ages with her
That includes you, my dear, she will say
All of us bends down to pick something from the floor.
She can bend down with no moans from her spine
Simple calisthenics and moving constantly
Should not be a secret,she says, with a smile
That’s one of my grandmother’s philosophy of aging
Keep moving because you are curious and alive
That’s one beauty of being unpretentious.
