I am always fascinated by old men and dead men–guess they are the safest (hardy har har) But really. this man pictured above is truly one of the most fascinating people I’ve ever met. His name is Monty and he is 94 years old. He was in World War II and spent most of his time on a transport ship delivering young Army soldiers to their destinies. I can only imagine how his life experiences have molded him. Nonetheless, his brilliant shining eyes, belie a knowledge and understanding of life that is beyond words. Livin’ Out Loud magazine should have an article (written by moi) coming out in the near future. I’ll let you know when. In the mean time, feel blessed that men like Monty walk the earth.

Writing tip: Listen to people who are old (or older than you) they know secrets to happiness.
