Ninety-seven year old Hal Lasko learned to paint with a computer at 81.
Experimenting with what he saw and touched, he created his own adaptation.
This video reminds me of a recent trip to the beach to find tiny crabs.
Look for rock, turn it over, swirl finger in water, shrug shoulders-no crab- hands up in air.
Go look for another rock.
Traipsing behind him, she modelled exactly that: look, turn, swirl, shrug.
Before long, she looked for hidden crabs with her own technique, touched and turned tiny rocks with both her hands, swirled and shrugged at crab-less puddled water in her own spots.
After finally finding tiny crabs, she adapted a new technique.
Look cautiously, don’t touch.
Touch tentatively, don’t hold.
Boldly creating her own adaptive techniques, my granddaughter is aging well.
Just like Hal Lasko.
it happens at every age.
