I add this here today to remind myself how much of an influence Sister Corita is in my expression.
My dad loved her work, too, and that is one reason I loved it. He bought a copy of this one, ‘the juiciest tomato of all,’ and had it hanging in our den. Then he would somehow find her work in magazines and keep them. I still have both the print and many of the copies. I bought a book of hers at Acequia Booksellers last year, Footnotes and Headlines: A Play Pray Book. It is filled with her print/poem musings.
One of my favorites is “I have loved you” about Gideon and God in conversation. I relate to it as Gideon is quoted in it saying he cannot believe – a place I find myself in.
She designed the first “love” stamp in 1985.
Today it is very good to immerse myself in her mode of expression and to remember it.
