"The fedora hat is my trademark"
83-year-old, Benny Rafael, dances his way in the room. "I love dancing and singing, and I also participated in the X-factor competition", he tells while demonstrating his talent and enrapturing everyone around him. "At the nursing home where I live everybody knows I love older men, they are like father figures to me", he says in a half smile and points to the rainbow-colored tie he is wearing. "But the fedora hat is my trademark", he adds while raising the hat and exposing a magnificent silver hair.
The one who said that the man makes the clothes, must have referred to Benny. To him, the clothing and the heart's desire does not effect the dance that is his life.
