Fiona Lenore Kleinschmidt (1948 - 2005)
Fiona Lenore Kleinschmidt - We, the friends and lovers of Fiona, refuse to mourn the loss of our great colleague and confidant. Fiona hated that maudlin bullshit and we intend to honor her. To those of you lucky enough to own a piece of Fiona's ceramic artistry, feel free to sell it. She always said it would make her happy to know people were profiting from her death. Fiona's Artists' Way(ward!) Group also wanted to wish her a happy journey to the Great Unknown. We love you, Fi. We'll howl for your Spirit at the next Full Moon celebration.
When the Spirit swells my breast I love to roam leisurely among the green hills... With half-closed eyes I watch the huge cloud shadows in their noiseless play upon the high bluffs opposite me, while into my ear ripple the sweet, soft cadences of the river's song. -- Zitkala-Sa.
Join us in celebrating Fiona's essence at Fisher & Diaz Funeral Home this Thurs. at 2PM.
