I have met Jeanne for my project If You Are Lucky You Get Old through a friend, who told me I should meet her because she is very special. She was right.
I look at marriage and I wonder how people stay so long in them. I don’t understand that. I got engaged about five times, but I always found something else to do. I love the opera and singing, I am a good golfer, I am a very good bird watcher, I go to yoga three times per week and I love to shop although I am not a shopaholic. But sometimes when I get desponded about being alone and being lonely, I think: Maybe this is really the end of my life. I did a very strange thing about seven month ago. I really made up my mind that I was gonna die. I packed everything up - postcards, love letters photographs and I sent a lot of them to a friend. She got very upset. One package got never delivered and it came back. I was so glad!
