“Everything is a present”

I just finished reading this woman’s life, Alice’s Piano.  Alice Herz Sommer is the world’s oldest holocaust survivor and a renowned pianist.  A remarkable woman with a remarkable attitude toward life, and this video is well worth watching.

Everything is a present

“At age 108, Holocaust survivor Alice Herz Sommer still practices piano for 3 hours every day. At age 104, she had a book written about her life: ‘A Garden Of Eden In Hell.’ At age 83, she had cancer. 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.’
