  • This is my friend Laura, and she's 80 years old.

  • And this is my friend Tiffany, and she is 26.

  • And we live in a retirement community.

  • I'm a part of of the Artist-in-Residence program at Judson Manor.

  • Which is a residential program where young musicians get to live here rent-free in exchange for performing recitals and concerts.

  • When I tell people I live in a retirement community, I get a lot of mixed reactions.

  • Some people don't believe me, other people think it's a wonderful idea.

  • I had not been a part of this community more than two days.

  • I was in the lobby and they told me about Tiffany.

  • And I walked over and introduced myself.

  • And I said, "Do you like dogs?"

  • Oh, she loves dogs.

  • And Tiffany and I became friends, we just formed a friendship.

  • We'll talk about art, we talk about clothes.

  • I don't wear fashionable shoes anymore, but Tiffany does, and we talk about shoes.

  • Laura, to me, is like a grandma, and also a friend, and a confidante.

  • I don't think the age difference is something that I am constantly thinking about, or that I'm aware of.

  • You don't think, oh, I'm having dinner with this 100-year-old and this 90-year old.

  • I'm having dinner with my friend Laura and Sarah.

  • In a way it is almost like being in a college dorm with the fact that there are so many people here from different places, from different backgrounds.

  • It might be a little bit quieter than a normal college dorm.

  • But I think we still have just as much fun.

This is my friend Laura, and she's 80 years old.
