Grandma Mary, Columbus, Georgia

Beautiful is just something she is,

The part of her that

People saw at first glance,

But her true everlasting beauty 

Was in in her depths…

“Hope” is the thing with feathers by Emily Dickinson

Artist of Hope

Artist of Compassion

Artist of Love

October 2018

To the prettiest grandma in the world

“Hope” is the thing with feathers

“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -

I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.

National Daughter’s Day - ‘We Remember Them”

In Remembrance of our daughter Crystal 

'We Remember them'

At the rising sun and at its going down
We remember them.
At the blowing of the wind and in the
chill of winter; We remember them.
At the opening of the buds and in the
rebirth of spring; We remember them.
At the blueness of the skies and in the
warmth of summer; We remember them.
At the rustling of the leaves and in the
beauty of the autumn; We remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when it
ends; We remember them.
As long as we live, they too will live, for
they are now a part of us as 
We remember them.
When we are weary and in need of
strength; We remember them.

"She Walks in Beauty Like the Night"


Crystal Michelle Fallin, age 25
a bridesmaid at her sister Angela's wedding 
May 8, 2010
Columbus, Georgia 

She Walks in Beauty

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And o that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

By Lord Bryon 1814
