"What surprised you most about America?"
"People don’t stare as much as I thought they would. But even if they do stare, that means you’re doing something different. And that’s a good thing, right?"
"What was the happiest moment of your life?" "
Probably when I saw my husband for the first time.”
“Did you know he was going to be your husband?”
“Oh, I don’t know. He was just so exciting.”
“What’s the most exciting thing he ever did?”
“Oh, I don’t know. One day when we were working in the garden, he got down on one knee and proposed to me. At that point, we’d already been married for 35 years.”
"We met 55 years ago on a teen tour, and have been best friends ever since."
“What’s her best quality?”
“What’s the toughest thing she’s ever helped you through?”
“I don’t know if I should say this, but I’m going to. Fourteen years ago, I got lung cancer. Then seven or eight years ago, I got breast cancer. And now the lung cancer’s back. I must have set a record or something, because it was fourteen years ago, but now it’s back, and it’s metastasized, and the prognosis is not good.”
“She’s doing good. The chemo is working.”
“She’s right, I’m doing ok, and I’ll make it longer than expected, but the prognosis is not good. And I’m gonna cry now, but I’ve got to say— and I know it’s a cliche— but she’s been there every step of the way. Every appointment, every surgery, every time I’ve done chemo, she’s been there. And I couldn’t have come this far without her.”
So moving. ♥
"Young children are in direct contact with reality. They experience the world through their senses. But as people grow older, we start thinking too much, and we form an ‘idea of reality.’ We lose contact with reality itself, because reality isn’t an idea… it’s reality. Luckily there’s LSD."
"What was the happiest moment of your life?"
"Seeing my mother and grandmother cry when I graduated from college."
Best one of these things I’ve ever seen.
"You’re either a good person or a bad person. It doesn’t matter what color or what religion you are. You’re good. Or you’re bad."
"What’s the most your life has ever been changed by an unexpected event?"
“Probably when I lost my job, which led to a divorce.”
“How did a job loss lead to a divorce?”
“A lot can be covered over by routine. So when there’s a shock to the system, underlying fault lines and fissures can really open up.”
