At a certain age, is hard enough to remember what you did yesterday. At 90 it really doesn’t matter.You keep on going with either reluctance, or abandon. What seems important, are the little things at hand, a flower, a cat, a crystal glass, a tree, and scattered glimpses into the remembered past that always tend to help. A bitter-sweet look into the freshness of the fleeing moments embodied in our present perfect continuous life. No matter the age.
