That Was Then

By Dianne Moritz

I was always athletic: fastest runner in 6th grade, on the gymnastics team in 8th, cheerleader for four years of high school, and in the Iowa University Dance Theater at college.
After graduating, I skied all over the US, often participated in Nastar ski races, and won a few medals, mostly bronze and one silver in Aspen.
I swam, bodysurfed, and boogie boarded till I had a mini stroke at 70.
Last year, I fell down a flight of stairs.
Now I hobble around like a centenarian, but as the adage goes, it’s better than the alternative.
