If I’m Lucky…

I went to church yesterday—a Unitarian one where I was required to believe nothing in particular. Sitting in front of me in the balcony were bland clothes of dull purples, black, and brown cloth—pants, sweaters, jackets. Surprisingly boring for such an eccentric denomination and for Portland in general.

I noted the heads of white hair settled atop the bland sweaters and cardigans, and I thought, If I’m lucky, I’ll get to have white hair, too.

One thought on “If I’m Lucky…

  1. I have no doubt that you will wake up one day and be one of those white haired ladies and I have no doubt that you will seek out the younger ladies and teach them about perseverance in the face of an uncertain life.
