Mary Colt left us on June 20, the day before I made
this picture. Mary was a great person and artist, always encouraging
others, and always a great correspondent. She once told me
that I would find some special place to do my art and make a special
spiritual connection. I don't know if I will ever find just one, but this
place is one of them, Nauset Light Beach, with towering views over
the ocean from the top of the sand cliffs.
Yesterday I was there with a friend to see the second sunrise of the
summer. This is one of the pictures I made there. In some way we were
keeping our own vigil for Mary, and I offer this to celebrate her life and passing.
