Anne Kulis Marcin has just passed her 100th birthday and in this work she talks about facing the end of a good life. She was born in Queens, New York in a time when there were still farms in the backyards of her Lithuanian and Russian neighbors. She witnessed the pivotal events that formed our times: the election of Herbert Hoover, the stock market crash, and the sad state of Stalin's Russia.
Her young life was a time of silent movies, horses pulling wagons and coffins in the street, live poultry markets, vineyards, gaslight and the bee hives next door. Some things were the same as now: the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Santa in the store, family gatherings for the holidays, sleigh rides, stern nuns in Catholic grammar schools, and catty comeuppances among young girls. But some things were different, two dollars a week for 16 hours work each day, fiery candles on the Christmas tree, death at home from tuberculosis, and the graphic presentation in the neighborhood movie house of the execution of Ruth Snyder in the electric chair.
Anne has lived through World War II, the Space Age, the Computer Age and into the current Smart Phone Age. She now resides on Orcas which is part of the San Juan Island chain in Washington State.
Anne still writes prolifically with a clear mind and a special insight into life and her past.
