Reckless Abandon

I recently lost my dear friend Lina. I was so lucky to have known her. I attended a wonderful celebration of her life on Sunday. I listened as friends from different chapters of her life got up and spoke about the organic farmer, political activist, organizer, artist, Mother, wife. I did not speak, I don't do that well in public, but if I did I would have shared this story at "toast time". Shortly after Lina got sick a local woman was organizing an art auction to raise money for cancer. I donated a mixed media story collage. Lina went to the auction and said there was a lot of traditional fine art there. Definately not a whole lot of "my style" of work in the room. I got a call a few days later from Lina, with glee in her voice,  letting me know that she was now the proud owner of "Reckless Abandon". She was a fierce friend, always so supportive. I will miss her smile, support and her friendship.  So my toast is to my friend Lina, Friendship & Reckless Abandon.
