I'm Walt. And I'm Marie Elena.
This is the collaboration of two kindred spirits; partners in rhyme;
"the best friends we've never met."
All "Across the Lake. Eerily."

And how does one sing
When it is Christmas Eve, and
You've just lost your wife?

Marie Elena
(In honor of Uncle Erwin, an artist and opera singer, who sang "Oh Holy Night" for Christmas Eve mass, after the passing of Aunt Marguerite on December 23, 1970.  Though I was only eleven, the memory of his voice remains fresh.  May they both rest in peace.)


  1. Dad didn't sing the Christmas Eve Mom died, But the strength and courage of Uncle Erwin are not lost on me. I shared in your plea for a peaceful rest for the four of them.
