„Age is not a factor“

Jeanne SocratesJeanne Socrates the day before her 80th birthday © privateYou only have this one life, so my motto is „Life is precious, make the most of it“. I hope I’m a good example of that. And as you can see: Age is not a factor. You just have to have your health and then get out and do something. If you absolutely want to do something, make it happen! If you don’t hinder anyone by doing it, nothing stands in the way of fulfilling your dream. You just have to want it.
