Lorita at Benson Park, Loveland, Colorado

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”
—  Anaïs Nin

This is a shot of my friend Lorita. We have known each other since second grade! On one of her rare visits to Colorado, we went to Benson Park in Loveland to enjoy the extensive sculpture exhibit there. I always look forward to her visits and I hope she can make it back this year!

Mandala for Shirley

Mandala for Shirley by Cathy Ulrich

Shirley passed yesterday.
Smart, caring, kind,
she loved art, music,
friends, family and Chuck.

Shirley helped many
see their potential.
She taught people
to work together.

Shirley made art that
expressed her beautiful soul.
Mother Earth and those who love her
were Shirley’s themes.

Shirley is fine.
Better than fine,
she is magnificent.
No longer afraid,
Shirley shines.
