so it’s a little corny, but hey!

We had the girls’ portraits drawn
against the wall of the Alte (Old) Residenz,
catty-cornered from the cathedral,
the home of the Prince Archbishop
Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau
(who ruled Salzburg from 1587-1612)—
we had the girls portraits done
in the rain under multiple umbrellas
strategically held to protect
artist, charcoal, paper,
subject, family, and luggage!

The artist, Vilmos Mazan, is from Budapest, Hungary—
an art teacher there during the year,
who spends Julys and Augusts in Salzburg.

Amidst all the music of the city of Mozart
and the world renowned summer music festivals,
I will ever remain so grateful to Vilmos,
who distilled into image
two of the richest
melodies of my life.
