We sneaked in one more fall day before the rain starts tomorrow, and it was a good one…lunch with the kids and their parents was exactly what the doctor recommended (and we saw the doctor JUST before lunch!) Goodbye sun. Keep in touch.
As we head into fall I’ve been thinking about the solitary winter ahead. Gathering now seems like an unbelievable luxury. Hugging is a slim memory. Yesterday a small gathering was had when George and Aaron and Jackie met us at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art to see the Clifford Gleason exhibition (Clifford Gleason: The […]
My Aunty Pat died today. My Mom’s sister, Pat was a daughter, sister, wife, Mom, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, businesswoman. She was lively, lovely, a font of fun in my childhood, the embodiment of glamor, the giver of fantastic gifts. 18 months younger than my Mom and separated by many miles in the last quarter of […]
And we’re all bound together by this motherhood thread…and on a day like today, when so very many of us are not with our mothers or our children or our grandchildren, images are about all we have….so here are some of mine. My mother and I started young… and luckily I got to go the […]
I published this on my birthday in 2009, but I still think it tells my story so let’s go again!! Today is my birthday and I’ve attained a certain age. I have plans, things to do, places to go. But today I’m looking back. (I tried to cut my own bangs–oops.) For a few years […]
Last weekend we dashed to Oakland with Jennifer and George to see Fanny…their daughter and our niece. Fanny has lived in the east bay area for about 5 years but R and I haven’t been to visit..so we had a long sunny weekend of good fun, good food and lots of art. Fanny made all […]
It absolutely is true…50 years ago on September 20, 1969, Roger Hull and Bonnie Decker got married in Wilmette, Illinois… and I can’t find the wedding pictures anywhere…so I started looking at other photos of us through the years. We’ve always had fun. We have had somber and sad moments like all lives have, but […]
Whaat? It’s August 1st? Hi…it’s been a while. My exhibit is over and I’ve navigated the often-post-show let-down…and in checking my photo file I see a lot has happened but I’m speechless on this subject so I’ll just roll out some images thereby proving summer is summer, mine not too different from yours…beach, garden, family…occasional […]
Father’s day weekend…here was the first Father’s day/Grandfather’s day five years ago… Roger’s father (with C & C & R) Roger’s Grandfather holding Roger’s father… and this year Sidney and Vivien are in Christiansted, USVI…celebrating with their father!
Our grandson Sidney has been a character in this narrative for the last five years as we watched him grow from a baby cutie to an articulate five year old. Each Thursday for most of those years the three of us visited parks and galleries and the kitchens of friends, we talked and shopped and […]
