I donated two postcards to Virginia Spiegel's fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. My thanks to Virginia for this generous offering of her time, dedication and creative spirit! What a blessing. You can see them both here.
My friend Ann died after a long battle with cancer in December of 2003. I moved in October and enjoyed chatting with her on the phone a few times in her last months. We talked on the morning of the first snowfall in Maine. I remember telling her that it took my breath away with its quiet, exhilerating beauty. Each winter I suppose I will think of Ann when the first flakes fall.
