I thought about this woman a great deal while I was working at this clinic, so different from any other 80 year old I had met. One day while pondering about her life, I came to the startling conclusion ...this woman was still alive because she did not have time to die, being so busy and occupied, excited and exhilarated, challenged and productive, she simply had no time for death.
It's 25 years ago that I worked at this clinic, I worked there for only one year, in that time I may have been with this woman maybe 5 or 6 times and only for 5 to 10 minutes while she waited for the chiro.
I don't know her name, I don't know her address, I don't know much of anything at all about her. How did she get to impact my life so markedly, in such a short period of time.
Somehow her countenance left a lasting impression on me.
I believe you cannot fake a countenance, it's who you are and your outlook on life.
Your countenance leaps up to your face from a place in your heart.
Your countenance is your heart printed on your face.
When your heart is alive.... well.... so are you.....
