I was speaking with my aunt on the phone - my beloved aunt who had polio when she was a child and has had pain every day of her life because of it. And, what a life she is having. Sailboat racing. Building a family place on the coast of Maine, knitting, quilt-making, culinary excellence (even on the boat!), and a love of entertaining and theater and anything you ask her to do. She is older and facing some back issues, and I was remarking, or maybe I should say marveling, at the way she pushes through it all without complaining to the point that most of us never thought of her daily pain.
