About a month ago, Kate Burkett was kind enough to let Kim and I suggest the place where Keren’s memorial would take place. We took her to the North Point side of the park and then walked to the far end of it, a place between a meadow and a row of trees and just a few feet away from Keren’s beloved Cayuga Lake. Kate liked the place, and so that is where on the sunny morning of August 3, a good number of Keren’s friends and relatives congregated to honor her life and her life’s work.
As soon as I arrived to the chosen place the day of the ceremony, I dropped down to the shore and photographed one of my favorite trees, the one that would be dancing right behind us as quite a few of Keren’s favs spoke, laughed, and cried about her life and her many tangible and intangible gifts to all of us. It was a wonderful, joyous encounter, and a good ways to reflect about our particular lives, relationships, and deaths.
These images of her memorial are my small tribute to Keren and her closest friends; too bad she could not come, she would have enjoyed the place, the people, and their stories, children, and dogs.
If you would like a print of anyone of these images, please get in touch with me here.
