The aunt who gave me this book was my favorite relative. She was my great-aunt, and still tied to the family’s older traditions. She even had an old horse-drawn sleigh in her garage/barn! She was the family matriarch, and my family spent every Christmas Day at her house, until she left us. I cannot read Frost’s poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” without thinking about her, or getting a tear in my eye. I grew up in rural Pennsylvania, and the works of Frost and the painter Andrew Wyeth had a strong influence on my development as an artist.
