Remembering Nina

Remembering the awe-inspiring artist, Nina Simone (nee Eunice Kathleen Waymon; February 21, 1933 – April 21, 2003):


Winter Garden

Dust of Snow
 – Robert Frost
The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree
Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.

The birthday present I gave myself today was simply a trip to my beloved Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The need to spend more time gets stronger and stronger. This afternoon’s visit lifted my spirit on this January day.
