Sad news again.

Looking on the bright side, it does reveal (the further link to her in Magnum) that we did have some people with wonderful vision, possibly more than we might think. I look at such work and then juxtapose it in my mind with certain images of the Rhine... what a world; what value calls.

Very, very sad news. I must have missed it in the WSJ. Bon voyage, Martine. You were a creator in this life. I think the Lord gathers creators to Himself.
