she'd be 120 years old today

Browsing round for links for this post I felt I'd had the wind knocked out of me over and over. Many people love her bones and deserts, or wonder at the flowers. I admire those too, especially the Taos church, and the cross. But if God came down and told me I could have Georgia O'Keefe painting I wanted, I would choose one of the watercolors, or one of the oil paintings
of fruit.

"My first memory is of the brightness of light...light all
around. I was sitting among pillows on a quilt on the
ground...very large white pillows..."
