My Four Awesome Sisters

Three of them were at my gallery opening on Friday, Ellen, Laura, and Neva, here in the order that I took the photos, and with apologies for how out of focus Ellen's and Laura's are. (I'll post some slightly better photos of them soon. Also, maybe they'd like to send me some better photos that they'd like to see here instead of these ones?)

Sandra couldn't be there in person, but this poem, which I wrote for her earlier this year, was on the wall:

 For Sandra

The prisoner is free at last.
Battered down by storms and waves,
She never stopped her swim to shore.
And when she hauled
Her soul from the seething surf
Of life on Earth,
She didn’t crawl.
She didn’t walk.
She flew
With the angels
To their bright home.

Thanks to Everyone....

.... who made "Lightening" such a success!

We did it! We made it all the way to, and then through, the opening night of "Lightening" on Friday the seventh, with help from the gallery board and volunteers, family, Christopher Luna and all the other poets who read to us, and friends from church and jujitsu. Thank you all!
