The silhouettes of trees,
large swipes of gold, yellow,
peach, orange, red, indigo violet
and blues blended with grays,
all created it’s own sense
of dramatic flair.
I am not sure how
easy it may be to see,
but there was the shadow of
the moon and the light of the sun.
If you are not able to see this in the
middle top section, well maybe the
sky and my eyes are playing
“tricks” on me!
In my defense,
I was wearing sunglasses.
Edith Wharton, author of
many books led a colorful life,
married to a sickly and depressed man.
She lived in a beautiful estate called
the Mount. You may enjoy a tour
in Lenox, Massachusetts.
When she sought out intellectual
stimulation, she found company
in a fellow writer and journalist.
She divorced her husband and
spent time with Fullerton of The Times.
She had been nominated for several
awards including the Nobel Prize for
literature three years in a row.
Edith won the Pulitzer Prize
for “The Age of Innocence.”
I read this and “Ethan Frome.”
I did not realize she wrote design
books and non-fiction books.

I like this quotation from
“In spite of illness,
in spite of the archenemy sorrow,
one can remain alive long past
the usual date of disintegration
If one is unafraid of change,
insatiable in intellectual curiosity,
interested in big things
and happy in small ways.”
What big stuff is happening
and/or what small things
make you happy?
