forever young…

When Jerry White was forced to retire at the age of 70, he decided to go back to school and get his third master’s degree, this time in education. He’s been teaching math at a community college since. “You know Rod Stewart’s song, ‘Forever Young’? Well, that’s my theme song,” he told me over coffee. I met Jerry in Keene, NH after meeting with a wedding couple. He had time to kill, and I didn’t have power, so we spent some time talking about life.

    I love this little series. He is gorgeous. Your photos are (as per usual) gorgeous. It's a great combo.

    He looks like a good coffee buddy. Third masters degree?? Whoah. I agree that the middle one is distracting when viewing the three of these as a whole. You are the master of portraits. I wish you could play croquet w/ me today!
