important friends are if you didn’t know that<br />

already. And there’s always that magic trick to<br />

fall back on; if you’re feeling bad, do something<br />

nice for someone. It always picks you right up.<br />

And if someone does something nice back to<br />

you, that also makes you happy. I try to make<br />

my relationships win-win.<br />

What advice would you give a 25-year-old?<br />

Plan ahead. Your plans will change dozens of<br />

times, but you will be better prepared for the<br />

changes if you’ve had practice planning your<br />

life. You will have figured out what is important<br />

to you.<br />

Considering your experiences, what‘s next?<br />

Life is such a gift. You don’t want to fritter it away.<br />

When I get to 80 my plan is to relax more with<br />

my partner, get us a couple of kittens, read more,<br />

dance more, and take an around the world cruise.<br />

Maybe have small dinner parties, game nights, or<br />

movie nights with friends, and continue the Walk<br />

and Talk group with Democrats Abroad. Stay<br />

active with the American <strong>Women</strong>’s Group of<br />

Paris. Support my local American Library in Paris,<br />

put together a theater group, host chamber<br />

music evenings, start a Readers Theater Group,<br />

maybe get a small place out in the country. Just<br />

slow down a little.<br />
