serenade

Carpe Diem #1084 Serenade (Schubert)

Families gather round a table ladened with food.  A table that has passed through generations.  From a grandmother none of those present knew due to the 1918 pandemic.  We each one carry a bit of that grandmother's dna in our faces, bodies or smiles.  While Grandma Annie was never known, her oak table provides the place to spread a feast of love.

caressed strings
within the sounds
a living heart
