IO: This Lady Makes Me Smile!



"Mary is 93 years old. We spoke for less than two minutes. After I took her photo, she said: 'If you force yourself to go outside, something wonderful always happens!' New life motto."

From Humans of New York

Yesss... It is NEW YORK CITY we're talking about, after all! The roots of my rural upbringing are showing.

She's still cute, though! She also makes me wish I could beam my grandmother back for a night and share a rum and Coke.

And despite that sparkle in her eyes, she could be batshit insane.

When Corialicia texted me in Moncton to tell me she was with you, I knew something was up. It sounded like a set-up to me, so I stayed away. It was the safest thing to do.

The gamey texture comes from all the knowledge we have.

Compressed like tundra, with billions of pounds of potent, micronutrient botanicals.


Another couple of quotes from the interviewer:

“She lived in NY for 46 years, but grew up in the Tennessee mountains. She said: "Ever since I lost my hearing, my Southern accent came back."

“(Mary) Lived in NYC for 46 years. Sounds like forever, but she was 47 when she came!”
