For All the History of Grief


I saw this doorway and couldn't help but think of Arcihbald MacLeish's poem, Ars Poetica:


It's Maggie Daley's funeral today. She passed away on Thanksgiving day, here in Chicago. She was much loved and deeply admired; she fought a valiant fight against breast cancer and showed us how to live with grace and dignity. She loved the arts and she loved children; she started After School Matters, as a place to foster the talents of the young, in communion with the artists in Chicago. She leaves us richer with the beauty she has created here, her smile forever etched in our hearts. May she rest in peace.
