Anna Wise

This morning on NPR I heard one of the best, most moving things I've ever heard: The story—told in her own voice—of how this 96-year-old woman Anna Wise met and courted her husband, to whom she was married for 57 years. It's only two minutes long. Go here but don't read the story, which spoils it. You need to hear Anna Wise say it. Click the "Listen Now" link and dig it.

Also, I'm back from Seattle. More about that fine city TK.

Storycorps is one of my favorite things on NPR -- I also heard this Friday morning on the way to work and cried like I usually do. I thought about trying to get your dad to do one while the storycorps bus was in LR last year. Now I wish I would have . . .
