I was pretty blue on 9/11, and I stayed quiet and reflective all day. And that night, I did something really upbeat and life affirming — I took a swing dance lesson from Frankie Manning, who is 92. Yes, that’s right. He’s 92!

He was one of the originators of the Lindy Hop back in the 1920s and, after two hip relacements, he’s still dancing. He teaches all over the world, travels something like 250 days a year. And he’s sharp, and fit, as tacks.

If he doesn’t make you feel good, well, honey, nothing will.
