On the Mend


I thank you God for
this most amazing day!
for the leaping greenly spirits
and a blue true dream of trees
and for everything which
is natural
which is infinite
which is yes

e.e. cummings


I'm feeling better. Thanks you for all of your well wishes and concern! I'm not 100%, but on my way. In my convalescence, I've been looking through photos and family records to send them on to Bernie in England so he can finish our branch of the family tree. It has not been an easy task. I find it very stirring! I found so many sentimental and meaningful photos, notes, letters, drawings and records. So many feelings. Now I'm sitting here scanning photos and watching episode II of Wives and Daughters. I'll post some of the ephemera in the weeks to come, and I'll leave you with this watercolor that my mom did using a poem of e.e. cummings.

I remember that painting. when we were still young and sure that all good things wouldcome our way. Frankly, I find it much to hard to evev try to remember! I can still feel the air and sunlight in Ben Lomond.
