Amazing Anastasia in her Eighties! . . . and Blueberry Cobbler






"Through all the world there goes one long cry from the heart of the artist.  Give me leave to do my utmost."
(Isak Dinesen)



When I invited her for Easter dinner, Anastasia offered to bring something.  I suggested a salad and she replied, “Is that all?”


Drizzled with raspberry dressing, her contribution was a masterpiece!
