viola, i swear i miss you, you were the wisest girl i knew

I spent Saturday April 18 (the two year anniversary of my mom’s death) the best way I know how. Painting outside and cooking delicious food.

One thought on “viola, i swear i miss you, you were the wisest girl i knew

  1. Every April 18, I happen to be in Virginia because of a family birthday around that time. That’s where I was when my friend Viola died and I first heard the news. Every April 18, I take a book of Rilke, walk into the Virginia woods, and sit and read as spring blossoms around me. Viola loved Rilke. It’s my way of never forgetting the brief time our lives intersected, and how many smiles she brought to to my lips, and my heart.
