Sometimes, you "meet" someone and all of a sudden, your life feels richer, bigger and somehow more meaningful, too. Maybe that someone inspires you to do better, maybe they encourage you to keep going, maybe they remind you that it's all worth it. Or maybe they just crack your heart open just a bit more, so that you may make room for them.
Pretty much all of the above happened for me when I met Alice.
At age 108, Holocaust survivor Alice Herz Sommer still practiced piano for 3 hours every day.
At age 104, she had a book written about her life: "A Garden Of Eden In Hell.”
Alice survived the concentration camps through her music, her optimism and her gratitude for the small things that came her way - a smile, a kind word, the sun.
When asked about the secret of her longevity, Alice says: "I look where it is good."
I love her and I think you may, too.
