Memorial Day

Today I put out our flag for Memorial Day - yes,  I am a super-duper patriot besides being a most excellent librarian.  I'm thinking about my dad and my first Zen teacher, Russ, who both fought in WWII in the Pacific and in France, respectively.  Both came back artists - after the war my dad immediately headed to NYC and attended NYU on the GI bill, taking courses in photography.  Russ went into the war a math major in St. Louis and came back an art historian and artist.  I am proud and honored to have had the gift of knowing both of them.
