In Memoriam

Today will be the first October 22nd my long time friend and “sister,” Carole Haber, will not be around to celebrate her anniversaire.

We shared October birthdays, loving all the month brings: cinnamon-scented candles, pumpkins at door fronts, the promise of the holiday season. Helen Hunt Jackson’s “October” says much in few words:

Here’s to the woman who cherished Paris, chestnut trees, family, and friends—and who always had time for one last song and dance.

  1. Facebook reminded me this morning that it was notre amie’s birthday – but we need no reminding. Thank you, Tricier, for a lovely tribute.
