On the day my mother died, just under four weeks ago, my gorgeous partner David (aka The Oboe Player) went out searching for a gift that would have meaning for me, that would make me smile, something I could enjoy and think of my mother. He bought me this Georgia O'Keefe book and gave it to me that night. It was simple and something nice, as a memento of that sad day. I treasure his very sweet gesture. A remarkable woman was my mother Marie MacLaren Walsh as was Georgia O'Keefe, both leaving amazing legacies in their own way. Reminds me also of the loss of another remarkable woman Susie Taylor, calligrapher & curator late of San Francisco & SFPL. I have just spent two hours reading about her in the latest issue of Alphabet.
Here's to all the exceptional and remarkable women and one special guy!
