She told me that she loves to have fun with her clothes, and isn't worried if it is the latest fashion or not. "As long as I like it, that's all that matters," she said. Indeed, every day, and every clothing choice seems to be an adventure for her.
The Tibetan necklace that I am wearing is a gift from her. She bought it when she lived in China in a little shop near to the Tibetan border. "Going to China changed my life, " she told me. "Before that, I was someone's wife, and someone's daughter, and someone's mother. But when I went to China, I could just be me!" She began that adventure in her 50s.
I will treasure the necklace, and our time together, as they are both part of a priceless legacy.
