A meditative session painting 'en plein air' up on Old Burial Hill, looking out over Marblehead Harbor as the sun began sinking behind me and lighting up the hill with a golden glow. I was thinking of my mother, who was recently diagnosed with ALS, and the looming prescience of her death. Even with those long shadows cast by the tombstones, the serenity of the harbor in the distance was comforting.
