I grew up in Mill Valley, California, lived in Poland, and studied Slavic Languages and Literatures at Indiana University. I taught at University of Michigan-Flint since 1986 in the History Department. I retired 2012, but continue to love teaching, writing, and research. I still teach online. The picture on this blog was taken in at my 50th high school reunion in 2013. A joy to see so many again . . .

Sunday May 10 Mother's Day

Here's to Mother's Day! This little statue of Mary is nestled in between windows on Kanonicza St. (Street of the Canons) where church bishops and other high officials lived from medieval times to the present. In the 16th century the facades were remodeled in the Renaissance style (curved arches) and embellished with details around the windows. In many European countries Mother's Day is celebrated in May, the month of Mary. In Poland, "Dzien Matki" is observed May 26.

  1. What a perfect image to post on this day. It's good to hear from you. I'm following your accounts with interest. Since you're six hours ahead, I guess Mother's Day is long over -- well, Happy Day anyway.
