“My mother died last year, but I was really proud of her. When her husband died, a friend told her, ‘Betty, you look really sad. You better go out and do something with your life.’ So she traveled the world teaching English. She went to Japan, China, Korea, Europe, the Philippines… We live in her old house. It’s the one right there, with the gray chimney. But she was widowed early, and she didn’t wallow in her grief. She lived life to the fullest. That’s what you have to do. Enjoy life, do what you want to do. You don’t have all the time in the world.”
