The Power of life..

I saw this article on yahoo this morning along with this stunning photo..and I remain speechless..
In this day and age,as we find ourselves totally obsessed with physical apearances as a symbol of youth and longevity..there is a woman who is too busy living life at it`s fullest to pay any attention to our silly preoccupations..
Not only does her elegant and stunning looks at age 100! put our cosmetic bags to shame ,but even more impressive to my opinion is her undenying obstinate dedication to her own inner truth,despite ANY limitations and lack of support around her,serving as pure proof that abiding by the true essence of life is more powerful than anything that objects to it.
Unfortunately it is always the rare few that are strong enough to function against the grind ,away from the embrace of the herd ,so they can serve as a living example that things can be done differently,and it is our responsability to aknowledge this effort and learn from their experience..
Hugely and forever inspired,I remain immensely grateful to Rita Levi Montalcini for her guiding example.
