I learned this week that the author Amy Krouse Rosenthal
had passed way from Ovarian cancer.
She was just 51 years old.
Thanks to Cathy Zielske‘s online classes, I produced two albums
based on Amy’s book, Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life –
Yesterday, I flicked through the marked pages of my copy
of EoaOL and stopped at this:
FLYING: When the captain announces we’re beginning our descent,
and we’re still pretty high above the city. I’ll think, if the plane goes down now,
we would definitely not be okay. A bit lower, and no, we still wouldn’t be okay. Maybe now, now we might be low enough that if it crashed, we might be okay.
That made me laugh out loud, because, you know, who doesn’t think that?
