Memories Are Made of This

I have just started reading a book about a woman who was a Docent at the Hermitage Museum in Leningrad at the time of the Siege of Leningrad in 1941. Apparently there was a little advance warning of the Siege and she was involved in removing the art work from the frames and crating it up for protection.  As an older woman writing today, she has memory problems, but also flashbacks to the beautiful art she had helped to preserve. I am a current Docent at the Church of the Transfiguration — my memories of the beautiful art are refreshed every day — as are my memories of the beautiful sunsets we see every day.  I think I will pay more attention to building my storehouse of memories as well as my gratitude to God for the beauty he has given me!

About Sunset Septuagint

Our family moved to the Community in 1971, when there were only 25 members. Now at 73 years old, I have been blessed `seeing the Community grow to more than ten times its size, and my oldest of four granddaughters about to graduate from Rock Harbor Academy. One of my greatest joys is being a Docent for the Church and sharing the blessing that visitors experience here. I am also privileged in helping to arrange tours for several of the Gloriae Dei Artes performing groups. I love to garden and paint, and occasionally I am privileged to sing with the Choir for its larger works.
