“Sharon did not die. Sharon is not dead. Sharon simply decided to live…over there, in another part of the garden…where a half moon floats sustaining the balance of day and night….knowing anytime, she can cross again that red curved bridge. “…I can see her now, standing under the thick purple mist of jacaranda…laughing.”
from a memorial booklet on Sharon published by Rochelle Holt of Lioness Press
her seventy-fifth birthday today.
Her piece Forever Anaïs graces our web-site as a lovely gift of scholarship she presciently did for our site in it’s early days.

The photo is from the Wikipedia entry on this remarkable tree that so defines the far reaching blessings of the spirit of our Rose of Sharon.
