I grew up in Aruba after my mother passed, but was born in Curacao in 1942. I have a daughter and two granddaughters, ages 15 and 6. My husband and I married in 1974, and enjoy a beautiful, long marriage to this day. I love to crochet, do crossword puzzles, and attend the knitting classes offered at my senior center. I am currently working on a tablecloth!
When I joined the Bronx Senior Photo League, I had to learn to actually photograph not just use a camera. I found that I was good at it after some practice. My favorite photos are of my family. I especially love to photograph my grandchildren.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed my life a lot. It’s very different now. The senior center is closed. Schools are closed. Everywhere you go, you have to wear a mask. I miss my senior center the most. While these closures are difficult, I am grateful I can go out when I have to for necessities. I am coping with it and doing the best I can. At the center, I exercise, I do crossword puzzles, and I see my community. I have been at this senior center for 10 years, so I can’t wait to get back.
