hannah kate

twenty five years ago i had a child. she was impatient to arrive, and i barely made the 1 1/2 hour trip to the hospital. monday she moved to boston for grad school, and today is her first class. she will be an archivist. 
a story. when she was two weeks old i loaded her in a front pack my friend kathy, who hannah is named after (h. kathleen), made for her older brother ian. and climbed a mountain. a small one, nevertheless i did it. on top, i nursed her, and changed her diaper. and down we came. the leaves were turning. just like now. 
the thomases, who were so briefly here, blogged about their visit.

Lovely, Velma! Blessings to Hannah as she begins another new journey.

Peter and Donna's workshop in Buffalo at the Western New York Book Arts Center was great! They are very special people.
