This week I am taking a break from my nuggets so that I can share another super woman story.
My friends know that I am always looking for stories of powerful non-celebrity women. This one was sent to me in an email. It underscores my nugget: Be passionate about something.
Passion keeps you young in body, mind, and spirit. If you don’t believe me, just ask Margaret Dunning, a lifelong car enthusiast; passionate about cars. Ms. Dunning is a 101 year old Michigan woman who still changes the oil and spark plugs in her beloved 1930 automobile. In her collection is a 1930 Packard 740 roadster, which she has owned (and still drives) since 1940. I said automobile instead of car because I am sure you agree with me when I say: “a 1930 Packard 740 roadster is more than a car. A Volkswagen is a car; a 1930 Packard 740 roadster is an automobile.” This vehicle is pretty cool. (See below)
To see a video of this fascinating woman, Google her. An article also appeared in the July 8, 2011, edition of the New York Times.No doubt, her love of cars has kept her young in body, mind, and spirit. What are you passionate about? If you run across an interesting woman, I would love to hear from you.
