ANN DAVLIN aka Grace Lowell, 93
People want me to be what they think their version of me is. That is not how I am. If I can discover all the innuendoes in my old age, I think you go on forever. You discover new things all the time, and old things come back in a different guise.
Ann Davlin is a ballet dancer and teacher, former song and dance performer, kindergarten teacher, and Jungian devotee.
