As A Wise Man Once Said...

As a wise man named Nathan Lansman once said,

a man who was somehow a cousin of my Grandma Shorty,

or maybe he was a second cousin,

I can't remember...

All I know is he was a tiny relative I could look in the eye

when I was eight,

and he said it at my grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary.

The idle chitchat had ground to a halt,

and Nathan Lansman looked at my father,

sighed a little,

and said the words that would become Starr Family Lore.

Say it with me now:

"Life is life."

You can't argue with that, now, can you?
