Of course, These days is My 100th Birthday
by Deborah Szekely
I awoke early at Rancho La Puerta, listening for the appears of one thing occurring on the lawn outside my casita just as I did when Sarah and Alex ended up minimal. “Shush,” I would whisper to them. “Let us get dressed!” Back again then, we allowed vehicles on the property, so I could hear quite a few doorways becoming closed gently. Staff associates have been arriving. Tables were staying set up with huge pots of hot chocolate. The tamales and conchas were prepared.
At 7:00 a.m., I arrived out the front door continue to in my bathrobe (a tradition) and was greeted by a mariachi band in entire voice, trumpet echoing off the hills, significant bass guitar thumping, violins keening. The patio had been turned into a bower of bouquets. And one dear mate, José Lupe, has introduced me one rose for each calendar year of my lifetime since I was in my 30s. What a wonderful way to start the day!
Dew was on the grass. The dawn slanted toward Mt. Kuchumaa, painting it a muted, mystical indigo. Many hundred voices broke into singing Las Mañanitas, the Mexican tradition at birthdays.
Despierta, mi bien, despierta. Wake up, my darling, wake up.
Amidst all the greetings and enjoying sizzling chocolate and conchas, I understood: I am a statistic and a curiosity—only 1.73 of us (of me!) for each 10,000 folks dwell this extensive. 100! To me, it really is only a range on paper. I can not settle for it. In no way can I be 100!
My gratitude for my extended daily life is inexpressible. The selection, having said that, will make no sense to me. Here I am at 100, but I even now experience like the younger girl who arrived here with Edmond in 1940. I still make limitless conclusions in my lifestyle, significant and modest. There is however so significantly anticipated of me, and I be expecting a terrific offer from myself. I am completely unprepared for being this “old.” For a single issue, so a lot of people occur up to me and ask what my key is, what words of wisdom I can share. And I am speechless.
