For Ella, upon her graduation…

Me at 22.  Had just quit my job and decided to go to college.  I started at 22 -- which was late, but, I loved working in Fashion right out of HS.

For you, Ella — Women writing in English from the Wikipedia.

For you Ella, what I read in Ms. Magazine in 1973 or so, in Junior High.  A poem, I have kept all these years: http://faithwilding.refugia.net/waiting.html

For you Ella,  some virtual flowers!

For you, about one year in… when getting through school and work would be one of the hardest things I would ever do.  In those days, there was only one Women’s History elective.  I took it.  The only thing I would have done over?  Was take Art Studio instead of Art History — I felt there wouldn’t be any jobs if I did that.  It was a fabulous Liberal Arts Education.  It really was, even though I was a grown-up and not in dorms by the time I did it.  For my MA, I was able to pay for it as I went.  Thank heavens.  Because “no student loans” is better than that first ten years I had to pay them off!

Key women I admire: Georgia O’Keefe, Amelia Earhart, Dorothy Parker (my mother’s favorite) oh, I could go on… and on.

CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU!
