â€œI am 76 years old and have been married for 58 of them. She had just turned 17 when we started our lives together.â€
â€œI buy jewelry from the Zuni Indians and sell it to people that appreciate the intricacy and beauty. Their art is so fine it is almost like needlepoint.â€
How do your customers find you?
â€œThey donâ€™t â€¦ I find them. I have been doing it for 40 years. No point in stopping, it is what I love and my wife isnâ€™t waiting at home for me any more.â€
Married 58 years, but his wife is no longer waiting at home for him â€¦ I swallowed.
â€œShe lives three hours away. So, I visit every weekend. Drive there. We have lunch together. I drive back.â€¨â€¨Itâ€™s been a little over two years now. She still recognizes me, which is good, but I am not sure for how much longer.â€
We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.
