MORE ONE LINE OBITUARIES & The Existential Question
No art today, but I do have this photo of something Shevonne made and sent from LA.
I also found a few one-line obituaries by gleaning the long version for the single sentence that seems to distill the essence of a life. These people particularly inspired me this week:
Christabel Burniston, professional Educationist:
"Still elegant, immaculately dressed and tiny waisted at age ninety, she published a novel.
Ioan Ivancea, Gypsy leader of a Romanian village band:
"Only days before his death, he was still reaching for his clarinet."
And of the marvelously dramatic poet, Francis Berry:
"He was happy to seem a foolish, passionate man."
Now for the infamous existential question: What inspired you this week?
