Hello, Yellow!

Christine Curavo

Laughter may not cure everything, but it is contagious, it does count as exercise—and the color that represents joy is most certainly yellow!

I was taken completely by surprise because I never thought of her being any age at all—even though she must be at least 15 years older than me, but then I really don’t know because she never seems to age.    Agelessness.  What is that?  My mom had it too.
