|Anne at 92|
|The Angel Israfel|
Anne is a computer freak, a proud owner of a Mac Book Pro which she learned to use shortly after her 90th birthday, and an iPad on which she often writes family. For years she was a MS Dos user. In particular she used several software programs to produce books of computer generated pictures. The one to the right, "The angel Israfel, whose heart strings are a lute, And who has the sweetest voice of all God's creatures" is particularly appropriate this evening. You can see some more of her work HERE.
|Angel of Death|
So, death as "upgrade." Right. As she sits with the angel of death by her side (see her computer drawing of the AofD) I am aware that death at the end of a good life well led is a friend. The goofy buzzard with the halo is about right. Anne waits for Israfel too, whose songs she can anticipate.
Who knows when it will be, but sooner rather than later.
Still, it makes me sad. I think it is supposed to.
