I whipple down to the Shoreline Cafe for coffee and breakfast.  The ever-faithful Alice is there.   I learn today she is 72, and, there she is, each time I go, a smiling waitress with a coffee pot almost always in her hand.  She didn't like retirement, so came to work for Sante at the Shoreline.  She walks on the bike path each day after work.  She says, "It's pretty hard to have problems when you're on the bike path."  She speaks of the birds, the tides, the sunset.   When she turned seventy, she hired a live orchestra and invited 80 friends to her party.  She says she knew her kids couldn't know what she wanted, and she did, so she gave it to herself.  She says she likes to go to the movies, and she is fine going with friends or alone.  She is quite the example of how to live, and how to age.

My cup is well-filled!!
