I would like a copy for Chirstmas! Please :) Nancy
me too and I want to sign up for photography lessons.Auntie S
Cebah is making a lot of art accumulations these days ~ yesterday she made her most daring "flower arrangement" ever - a blue pint mason jar with the purple & white spiral peels of turnips splaying out of it! Any Ikebanist would have given her the award for that one. I should have photographed it!
Alan, I clicked through and looked at your flickr set of Dandyland photos. Wonderful!! They made me miss Cebah and Dan and Dutton Hill all the more. Please give your mom a hug from me, Danny.
can anyone remember or does anyone want to remember life before our darling Cathy. I am officially starting the "Bring her home campaign".....FYI: Ashley's grandmother as found near Louisville over a cliff. She'd been missing for over 3 months
Oh how awful about Ashley's grandmother! Still at least they know now.
I thought it more appropriate to slip it in a comment on your blog.....The family is totally relieved, but sad, of course.A 12 year old saw the car over a cliff while walking her dognear Middletown....about half way between Shelbyville & Louisville
Horrible about Ashley's grandmother. The family must have been crazed with worry, and now such a sad ending.
truly sad. The family just held a press conference. Ashley is the family spokesperson. He's brave for such a young guy
The Cebah art just made me teary, it's very poignant.
This morning she was out in the yard & when I went out she sang "Oh what a beautiful morning" - (one chorus) with hands outstretched to the surrounding beauty (it really is lovely here.) Then said "How do you like that song?" It was very moving and hilarious at the same time. She's very in the moment now.
I think all our elders, be it human or four footed or winged, have the gifts of wisdom, and sensitivity even keener [sp?] than ours. Greens are greener, warm is warmer...I always think as I age, assuming I get to 80 or more, that I will almost explode with even more gratitude for each little thing around me and its beauty or sensation that we only get on earth. No matter where we end up, perhaps as life is pulling away, we sense that, and just want to rejoice in all the natural companions we've had our whole lives that you only get on the earthly walk. Sort of heavy, sorry.
Oh not heavy, I think ~ it's a lovely thought & my experience, so far, agrees.I feel so lucky to have spent time with a bunch of wonderful elders. (I don't think any of them liked being thought of as elders tho!) In my family there were several, especially my mom's two brothers, Phillip & Madison. Then, because I was interested in their skills and stories ~ Jean Ritchie, "Grannie" Mayfield, Chapel Wallin, Walker Calhoun, Willenna Broyles ~ they were all so generous with their time & in each of them I could sense exactly what you are saying ~ time and experience had honed them keen to beauty.
