Em's Old Books

Em's Old Books
Oil on Wood
Back to books. When Fall rolls around, a soft afternoon light fills the void left in the childrens' vacated bedrooms. I often think I should "clear out the old energies," as my mother used to say. But I like the nostalgia that clings to a stack of their discarded books. Memories of a full house come to life. And for a fleeting moment I feel the presence of family all around.
