Mom Says It’s All Going To Be OK

image of rainbow over suburban house in london, ontarioFor those of you who don’t already know, my mom, Bernice Vincent, died on Friday, March 25th.

You can read the obituary, a kind tribute by James Reaney, and an interesting article in the London Free Press. Or review her career as an artist on her web site.

Here I post this rather poor photo, taken two hours after her burial. After a weekend of mixed weather including sun, warm, cold, rain, snow, sleet, cloud and clear, the day of mom’s funeral was primarily sunny with swaths of interesting cloud.

At the cemetery someone looked up and said, “it’s a Bernice Vincent sky.” Someone else piped up, “they’re ALL Bernice Vincent skies.”

After we got back to mom’s place and were beginning to relax, the clouds, very briefly, opened up, then broke with sun in the west. For just a few minutes, hovering over the house, was this rainbow.

 

Thank-you, mom,

for everything.

London – 9th Floor (late post)

I did, however, get to spend some time looking out a 9th floor picture window at the changing weather over downtown London. Read more “London – 9th Floor (late post)”
