- Mar 1, 2003Your painting says more than 10,000 of
my words could ever say.
It transports me to a place in the heart that
memory alone could not. A place in the
heart described aptly by Lisel Mueller,
"Sometimes when the light strikes at odd angles
and pulls you back into childhood
and you are passing a crumbled mansion
completely hidden behind old willows
or an empty convent guarded by hemlocks
and giant firs, standing hip to hip,
you know again that behind that wall
under the uncut hair of the willows
something secret is going on
so marvelous and dangerous
that if you crawled through and saw,
you would die, or be happy forever."
To let go of that history, is to
lose everything. Absolutely everything.
[Breathing in, breathing out.]
Thank you is too small a thing to say
to you, Bobby. But it's all I've got.
