Jim and Marie Billups, on their anniversary,
for they had been married at this
mission in San Juan Capistrano,
in the "Summer of '42". (hum, a movie by that name!?!?)
Well, I was there in '96 on their anniversary. My greatest challenge, was that my Dad was no longer with us, physically.
He left on his journey "Home" in May of that year.
So, I titled this plein air piece "Passages", for each of us must pass through this portal, on our own journeys Home.
