To all of you Tasha Tudor fans, it is Tasha's birthday today, Oh, what a life! This is one of my favorite pictures of her in her kitchen. I would love to be able to live so simply. She passed away last year at the age of 92. She exemplified grace and simplicity. She wrote and illustrated so many beautiful books - she was an artist personified. I wish I would have known her. I have several friends who are in their 90's, and I will miss them so much when they pass. Tasha Tudor once said:
"Einstein said that time is like a river, it flows in bends. If we could only step back around the turns, we could travel in either direction. I'm sure it's possible. When I die, I'm going right back to the 1830s. I'm not even afraid of dying. I think it must be quite exciting."
I will think of her today, I'll try to make my time more meaningful. I'll read a few passages from one of her books. When it is dark, I'll light a candle, pet the dog, and enjoy the sunset.
