母女的旅程(5)偶遇画家Dorothy: I may be old, but I can still make flowers

画展当天下午,我们如约4点到达画廊,主人还没有到,我们就在附近逛逛。隔壁一家更大的画廊开着门,值班的是一个中年女画家。她热情地跟我们打招呼,得知她名Dorothy,擅长画花卉. Happy问Dorothy是否有更多的作品在展览, Dorothy带我们走到一副画面前。Happy说象仙人掌,我觉得象干枯的芦荟,因为那花儿跟我家养过的相似。画家Dorothy说,”It's an old aloe vera. It's the story of my life – I may be old and withered, but I can still make flowers.”

这句话让我想了好久, 不知如何翻译才能传达画家的精神。 所以, 不翻译,不评论啦。

下次贴画展的照片。

PeonyInJuly 回复 悄悄话 回复 '思韵如蓝' 的评论 : Yes, 思韵! So glad both my soul mates like this statement! "Inspiration", yes, that's the word I was looking for.
Denver is a beautiful city, and yes, the streets are all pleasantly wide and neat. Happy's BF's parents traveled from Canada to Denver last year to show support for her first solo show. We all got together and toured the area on that trip. I might make another post with more pics of the city, and some of my favorite restaurants there.
PeonyInJuly 回复 悄悄话 回复 '过客手笺' 的评论 : Thanks dear! I didn't know the difference between aloe and aloe vera, hence have been using them interchangeably... I'll revise the post ...
And yeah, I was really touched by what Dorothy said, she said it with such a calm voice. I could imagine what she might have experienced in life, and how she gained inner peace after a long journey...
思韵如蓝 回复 悄悄话 Me too,that poetic statement is such an inspiration to me. :)
BTW: The street of Denver looks so neat and tidy.
过客手笺 回复 悄悄话 ”It’s an old aloe. It’s the story of my life – I may be old and withered, but I can still make flowers.”---- the aloe is aloe vera, right? I love what she said, it's so poetic......
