Three Minute Writing Exercise

3 minute writing exercise:

Wrinkles and aging and mirrors. Three words that didn’t even cross my mind when I was nineteen while exploring my hormones, boys, limitations, and identity, of course.

A blink of an eye is forty years. Nuyorican hippie, bell bottoms and Afros. The Delfonics….Temptations…Four tops…the Who…Janis Joplin, and of course the Beatles. La Fania All Stars in Madison Square Garden…dancing in our seats, even if we sat in the bleachers. Tito Puente…Hector Lavoe…Celia Cruz. Three minutes were harder than I thought pecking away on this itouch.
