The Grandmothers!

Doors, The GrandmothersMy previous post included a photo of the cover of one of my altered books. The pages above are from that book.

Grandmothers! I am rich in grandmothers, as are we all. In the photo above, the baby is my Grandmother; her mother, my Great-Grandmother, is standing; the woman holding my Grandma is my Great-Great-Grandmother, and the impressive woman seated on the right is my Great-Great-Great Grandmother. The only one I ever knew personally was my Grandmother (the baby.) She was a fiery red-head, full of energy and fun. She graduated from Vassar back in the day, and was courted by my Grandfather, who was a student at Harvard. Quite a match!

These strong women were the living “doorways” to my life, so I included them on the free front end-paper of my book.
