Memory Eternal, 2011

Tom plucks a rose from the Milliken mansion ceiling he restored, for Nancy who is crossing guard for her Waldorf charges, watching May’s chicken’s cross the road.  We both lost our mothers that year so their final favorite views in the heart shaped insets:  for Sis Melvin the dock on Williams pond in Wellfleet and for Lolly Halverson the view from her Orcas Island home looking down on the Puget Sound.
