Every day events by Lynn Cohen

Yesterday we walked the Berg, Berghausen castle, and I had the opportunity to sit and draw this one small part. What a joy it is to be here. A place my husband lived, literally in the guard house, as an infant with his German mother, before his American military father could send for them to come to the USA. They were "displaced persons" because of the war housed in the castle with others in the same situation.

    That sure keeps your mind and hands going. May the Lord keep you in good health so you will be-able to continue all of your pleasures to a ripe old age. I am glad I met you like everyone else. I enjoy your art.
