Stark Black and White photo of a white rose

A White Rose for Erika and Her Sisters

A few months ago Erika Kind mentioned
a picture I’d posted of a White Rose.

I posted the photo in honor of an anti-fascist
group that called itself the White Rose in 1942.

Erika told me she liked the rose so I said
I’d make another.

When I think of Erika Kind I also think of the
women who
follow her and call her sis.

I read their blogs and their comments to each
other and I see love, and light, and respect.

They are professionals and mothers; they are
women with talent and skill.

They work to enrich our lives with art and

So, to Erika Kind and her Sisters,

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

  1. Yea, kindness is what the world needs…just now it seems in short supply…but this , Robert, was a kind deed …and it is a sign of the times we live in that ‘kindness’ is admired cause it stands out and That is sad.

    1. The bloggers on WordPress are some of the most intelligent and compassionate people I’ve had the pleasure to meet. I find that it helps to validate the good when we find it. It sure makes up for the glitchy software.
