Mary de Rachewiltz at the tomb of her parents,Ezra Pound & Olga Rudge
"Mary!" I cried. "I'm so happy to see you!"
"Cat Bauer!" she exclaimed. "I'm running into everybody today."

We decided to take a photo to document that she was, indeed, alive -- not only alive, but I can attest that she is as witty, feisty and delightful as ever. When I made a remark about her father, she jousted me, jokingly using her cane as a sword.

Remembering the ancestors is something that should be highlighted in every culture, whether the emotions they bring up are good or bad, happy or sad. The celebration here in Venice of those who have gone before us is a tradition I deeply respect.
