Monday morning, with the warmth and quiet of early September. I feel grateful to be here, to be able to watch the same birch tree turn gold once again. When my mother was in the hospital for her last illness, it was autumn, and she was near the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, where she taught in the English Department for years. Today I picture Enola Borgh on campus in another time, younger than I am now, and I am happy she had those years. Her life came full circle, as did our friendship. She had been retired for 20 years at the time of her passing, and the current Department Chair sent a sympathy card to the family.
Here’s another Van Gogh from WPClipart. The link to the page of his paintings, in the Public Domain at WPClipart, is in the previous post. Thank you for your comments and likes, which are always so generous and welcome. Blessings, Ellen
