811 - Walking Away
Galion, OH USAWidth:
Photoprinted on muslin.Artist's Statement:
I used a photograph taken on an autumn day several years ago. My husband, though surrounded by the beautiful scenery, was not looking at it, but intent on walking back to the car. To me this is a poignant memory.
Constance Ross Dedication:
For my husband, Harold, in hopes that a cure will soon be possible.
This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles
This quilt earned $90.00 for Alzheimer's research.
We took a walk one fine October day, the sky a cloudless blue
The tall old trees were raining down bright golden leave
That seemed to twinkle as they fell carpeting the ground
"Look up" I called, but Harold still walked on, looking only at the road ahea
"Wait, wait for me!" but seeming not to hear me walked steadily along
Not seeing all the glories 'round and over him
I ran to catch him and get a picture of it all, but he was far away.
Is this how it will always be?
Wanting to share with him
And he impatient to be home?
