Old Friends

We’ve reached the age when that’s something to brag about.

With Margaret Harris, whom I have loved and admired from day 1—freshman year in high school, 60 years ago. Photo by Phil Straus, her husband and fellow photographer, activist, world traveler, grandparent.

With Miriam Gerber Kaplan, my college roomie, former attorney, current grandparent, art collector, world traveler, mindful mensch in Memphis. We clock 56 years.

The Simon and Garfunkel song is poignant, but it’s also, comically, a very young person’s dire view of older age. “How terribly strange to be 70”? Actually, no. “Preserve your memories, that’s all that’s left you”? 😂 🤣
