A 3rd drawing by my Grandmother. I’m guessing this is Lake Ontario in the early 1930’s.
This is another drawing by my Grandmother from the 1920’s.
This is one of my Grandmother’s drawings from 1928.
This is a second poem by my Grandmother Ethel from her scrapbook.
I found this poem in my Grandmother’s scrapbook, I believe it is from the late 1920’s.
I’ve been going through my Grandmother Ethel’s scrapbook. My Grandmother attended The Veltin School in New York City. In the coming days I’m going to post some of her artwork and poetry. She lived her life in New York City, Rochester, NY, then Myrtle Beach, SC, for retirement. I was very close to my Grandmother (1907-2000). We were/are both poets and spiritual people. I’ve taught at a school serving girls for several years now, my Grandmother further connects me to that work and the historic mission of those institutions.

St. Elmo’s Fire, now obscure
80’s movie, song, stuck in my head
I imagine myself ninety two
like my grandmother once was
humming lyrics, words
Bye Bye Blackbird
in a room full of people
with blank faces
Judd Nelson long forgotten
