Leading Through (On the Occasion of My Mother's Unveiling - 8/30/2015)
Leading Through (On the Occasion of My Mother's Unveiling - 8/30/2015) On the cover of the program for your unveiling, I stapled a photo of Pelham Parkway where it meets Wallace Avenue on the esplanade. The funny thing is that in Letter, instead of arriving as a photograph, it branched into some kind of modern impressionism in which tan became red, the shadows mellowed to green and the air between blanched to sheer white. It made Pelham Parkway look like Psalm 23. Then I realized that this is indeed where you might rest and that you were here would always be here with me and I thanked Letter format for blending two times and places and for joining us once again.
