Oma Rita – Age 22

Photos, Courtesy of Carole Van Straatum

Oma told me tonight that this photograph is performing a Hawaiian dance with her group of that time. She was my age, 22 years old, in 1958.

We discussed being happy in your current age or state of being. To embrace the time as it is and celebrate the nowness of it all. That life goes in phases.
