In addition to the flowers, there were posters with pictures and a slideshow on a television at the funeral home on Saturday. Sitting there, I had a strong sensation of a scene in the movie Vertigo, the one where Madeleine touches the Redwood tree rings and says, “Here I was born and here I died. It was only a moment."
Taking off the long weekend is really going to make this week more difficult than usual! Classes start Thursday, and I am rushing to finish up Winter Session grades and be ready. But I needed the break, the change of scenery that Samsonville provides.
