After battling a gastric bug for most of this month, I could not
think of anything nicer than on my first day of driving again
to find this wonder in the post.
As I either swelter or freeze, depending on the weather coming
from the desert or the Antarctic in our uncertain spring,
the wonder of autumn captured on paper drifted across the ocean
from Darling Daughter who is currently enjoying fall as artist
in residence in Portland Oregon
and suddenly my spirits soar as I hum 'autumn leave' while I
vacillate between them drifting by my window or languidly
floating down a river or gracing a frosted pond
It is pure joy to know I have a daughter who can feel from
so far away what my heart craves . . .
Thank you India, you are the best.
