Congratulations to Edie Barrett in our region (Ortonville) for being selected as a Minnesota State 2020 Honoree for 50 people over 50! Here is what she had to say:
The truth is, I don’t think about my age, which is rather ironic since I am 60. As I contemplate this award, I believe it boils down to living an interesting life, on my terms. I could also define it as living a meaningful life. It’s important that I am authentic, genuine, and ethical. It is important that I practice kindness and generosity, and that I continue to explore and support issues of justice and social truth. Overall, it is important that I contribute to the goodness of the world. Here’s what’s true for me: I live my life in profound gratitude. I am grateful for the choices I have made and for the way that I live my life. It is my hope that I will continue to evolve and grow and embrace my journey with curiosity and wonder.
I want to acknowledge SMAC for their support of my creative endeavors, and their support of arts in West Central Minnesota.
