My Saturday

Yesterday I went to my friend Christine's Memorial Service in Sonoma, California.
Sonoma is eleven miles from my home located in the wine country.
The service was beautiful and I met a lot of her family and friends.

Above is an art piece on property of the Kenwood Restaurant.
November 2006 was the date I took Christine's photo in this same field.
There is always some kind of art on the grounds near the restaurant.
When Christine and I were there we had wine and h'orderves.
It was a beautiful day.
(scroll down on my blog to see my original post on Christine)

At the memorial the same photo was on the alter that I did for the service.
Normally I do not feel comfortable speaking in front of a big group of people.
However this time I felt I had to explain the photo and tell about our day in the vineyards.
It went well, and I would of had regrets if I had not stood up.
Christine was honored and people enjoyed hearing about the photograph.
May she rest in peace...

Soon it will be fall and the vineyards will be glorious in full color of autumn.
I already know I will return to this place.
