remember when I met Lil a couple of weeks ago?
So how did I come across Lil? Heading to and from my photography software class at the 92nd Street Y in the Upper East Side, I would pass by a little elderly lady on the corner. Set up with her metal table and couple of sacks…selling her art and books. Wrapped up as if it’s in the dead of winter and often chatting it up with people and the occasional purchaser of a book or two.
I so wanted to learn a little bit more about Lil…and guess what?
Besides being a woman of age…many of you know I absolutely adore the elderly…I quickly learned she hates rules <a woman after my heart>, wants to experience so much more in her lifetime <I find that so inspirational!> and she’s a joy of her neighborhood. Oh, and she’s 92 years old. And she loves art…thus my reason for my purchase of one of her pieces! And you know what’s even more special? She has my father’s eyes.
I have a feeling you may hear more about Lil in the future…
