Keep Breathing: Recollections from a 103-year-old

ByMorrie Markoff

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
“When you reach the age of 100, suddenly, even if you did nothing notable, you are a celebrity. Friends, even longtime ones, neighbors and strangers look at you differently. You see and feel it. When perfect strangers find out, they shake your hand, as if, by osmosis, you can transfer the secrets of long life to them.” Morrie Markoff only has this advice: Keep Breathing. These are his recollections from the last century beginning in a New York tenement in 1914. Morrie recalls his impoverished beginnings that led to his creative years as a metal sculpture artist and photographer. Although he never set out to achieve any milestones, Los Angeleno Morrie has received media attention for his first gallery showing at age 100, diamond anniversary to his wife Betty, and his first book signing at age 103. Morrie has no plans to take it easy. He only has plans to “Keep Breathing.”
