#12: Dream Offers Recipe for Youth

On the morning of my mother’s 75th birthday, my dreams offer advice on aging

I’m gripping a pulley handle, rolling along a guy-wire

Strung high above the ground. I’m practicing

Flips and fancy moves, suspended and soaring.

I decide I will do a flip like this

Each year on my birthday. That will keep me

Young and adventurous.

That is what I’ll do.
