One of my great inspirations is Dell Williams. Dell is the founder of Eve's Garden, one of the first sex shops in New York City that was specifically created for women.
I met Dell in November 2007, and she told a story about going to Coney Island that week on an unseasonably warm day. She stuck her feet in the water and it was so delicious, she just had to remove all her clothes except for her bra and panties and take a dip. She was 84 years old at the time.
Just a reminder today, that you get to be whatever kind of grandmother you want to be.
Even if you don't have any grandkids.
Even if you're only 19 years old.
To the wise woman who doesn't give a hoot what others think, who wears polka dots and stripes at the same time, may she whisper to you from the future today, and may you all muster all the courage and zestiness you've got when she sweetly sighs: "let's go for a swim."
