Yesterday I met Debra’s good friends Mary Winder Baker and Susan Wick. In the 1970s, they worked together as a performance group focusing on women’s issues, fashion, health and nutrition, and ideas of aesthetics. Here are some photos I came across from a performance they did in Berkely in 1975. These women have stayed young at heart because they continue to have fun and explore their creative spirits.
My good friend Debra has taught me a lot of life lessons in the year that I have known her. One of the most important ones is to always have fun and enjoy what you are doing at the moment. I met another women in her 90s who explained to me that although her body had aged, she felt like a child inside. This doesn’t mean that she hadn’t matured, but that she still had a young spirit and longed to play and have fun .One of the keys to remaining youthful is remembering to have fun, and dressing up is a great way to express this kindred spirit.
