A compilation of my mother's poetry which my father found after she died. From 1940-2010, she wrote daily on subjects ranging from her fears during the period of time when Latvia was invaded by the Communists and her father was executed in Siberia to later times in her life when she pondered nature, God and her own mortality. This project took over two years and we are proud to share our accomplishments! I am a writer as well as a ceramist, painter and gardener. My mother remains my main inspiration to strive and thrive in my own creative endeavours!
