Adele Darling Redux
Today would have been my dear late mother’s eighty-fourth birthday.
I think of her daily and dream of her often. Adele had enough compassion for the whole world. She was brave and always willing to lend a helping hand. She spoke up when necessary; her compassion did not make her a fool.
She would say to me: “Giving up on your art is like tossing your baby away.”
So, dear Adele darling, who is now free from pain, be well in that place beyond.
Your mom sounds like she was a wise woman. It’s always the right road to take, to cultivate someone’s talents. Hang on to your wonderful memories.
Your love for your mother and your mother’s love for you and your art are so touching and inspiring.
Honoring our connections through observing anniversaries are so important.
