  • Louise and Noble’s house backed up to our backyard — they on Oakhurst, we on Sylvan Dr. We had such a lovely over-the-fence friendship. I am grateful for her joyful and enthusiastic presence in my memories.

    During a partial solar eclipse she came through the gate to watch the event with us, viewing through the safe-for-your-eyes shadowbox. As the moon crossed in the front of the sun we enjoyed the moment, marveling at the sun and the moon and the people who discover things about nature, the stars and the sky.

    She moved. We moved. We were blessed to have walked the earth at the same time.
