Compliments about my writing > everything else. 

Thank you, sweetie. It’s really kind of you to say. 

I absolutely love it when my Grandma and me get into a conversation about our family. I probe her to death about all those relatives that I never met. Here are a few gems I uncovered today:

I love family history so much. I was thinking about it, my Great-Great Grandma will have been born around 1875. My Great-Great Grandma, a woman that my Grandma remembers well, was alive when Robert Browning was (she potentially knew him as the Poet Laureate?) And her Mother (or maybe her Grandma), will have almost assuredly, undoubtedly, definitively have at least known of William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge personally, as the two poets lived in the village next to my family. Six generations really isn’t that much of a leap. It’s insane, and amazing to know so much about people that I never met or knew, yet somehow feel so connected to.

Painter painting in our land pictures of only white angels
Painter painting in our time in shadows of yesterday

Painter, if you paint with love, paint me some black angels now
For all good blacks in heaven, painter show us that you care
