As I was contemplating the mighty big birthday I am celebrating this week, I stumbled on this tiny video. Yeah, that’s it. Role models.
Italian ladies skipping rope in sandals.
You can see the girls they were. They’re still there!
It reminded me of “Isabel Croft Jumping Rope”, captured by the great photographer Arlene Gottfried on one of her many wanderings around New York City. GIRLJOY is there also. Maybe that’s the secret.
I’m going to CELEBRATE!
(Since my big birthday runs into Memorial Day Weekend, I’m going to take the time to think about a few things. I’ll be back June 7th.)
View a beautiful piece about Gottfried, with many photographs, in the New Yorker.
