The Story of Gabrielle-1 Gabrielle was Alert and Happy until. Gabrielle was labelled a Bright Alert and Happy child with a born ability for leadership her teachers said. But then agreed that her one outstanding Talent was in the Field of Art. She via an interested Dabbler in painting from the time she was five by Catherine Gabrielson you were nine that a Long legged Sun kissed Little girl with Long straight Sun bleached hair. You were Strong and healthy full of Lively in spirits. You had abundant Energy and an extra Ordinary capacity to savor each Day though it were your first or last. You were away at Camp for a month for the first time and we had the fun of receiving your letters unti Dily scrawled and scribbled on scraps of paper but full of news and enthusiasm after the second week you wrote begging to stay an extra month. V 1-1 but we could t afford to let you stay another month. Be sides with Deirdre in Maine and you in Wisconsin Truro was t and i was getting Lone some. Four weeks without child Ren was Long enough for me. The night you arrived Back in Truro was a gala occasion. We had a guest for supper but no proper conversation was possible. You were full of your new experiences Bubb Ling Over with the need to Tell everything at once that we All just sat around and listened to you. Deirdre was eight then and you promised her that she could come with you next time. Together again we spent the hazy Lazy Days of August and Early september wandering the beaches gathering our spindrift harvests of starfish and Drift Wood of sandblasted bottles old corks and shells. You were an excellent beachcomber with a Sharp Eye for the great potential in a broken barrel a silvered log. Yet never losing sight of the transient Beauty everywhere that could not be carried Home. The farthest reach of Sand was never too far to walk when an unidentifiable shape beckoned tantalizingly on the Sand horizon. Nor were you really disappointed when we came at last to a battered Orange crate or a broken Broom stuck in the Sand. By late september we were Back in new York and you and Deirdre started school. Walton was especially exciting now. Because you were graduating into the Middle school and the fourth Grade was pre paring to go onto the Walton plan. Your assignments were Long and All the special teachers Art shop music j. Were from the Middle school staff and treated you like real grown ups. X and you were growing up. You no longer talked about Mak ing Midnight visits to constellations and you went to bed in pro per nightgowns. We had grown accustomed to seeing you go to bed draped with coloured scarves tied together Here and there for easy flight i presume. They were absolutely necessary you insisted for your visits to the stars. You especially liked a trip you took frequently to the fourth Star of the Milky Way. But All this had stopped now and you wrote poems instead poems that showed your in quiries were turning from outer space to yourself. One of these was called i come i crime from Forest Glade from watery Lake from Mars from the cold cold Moon from the idiot hot Sun i come from hell from heaven from Angels in the sky from devils underground i come from the Middle of the Earth i come from space from Clear air i come from the world your reports from school had always been Good and daddy and i were Happy that the school seemed to understand and appreciate your Many extravagant and divergent energies. Even in second Grade your report said Happy and boisterous Gabby a very stimulating and outgoing member of the group. She finds enjoyment in All class activities always1 Sug Gesting ways of dramatizing Reading material Etc. Anderson the Art teacher says that Gabby one of the most amazing children she has Ever seen in the studio. She has most of the qualities of a highly sensitive and mature artist combined with an end less flow of Energy and inventiveness. She refuses any suggestion loves accidents in her work and constantly experimenting but never losing sight of the standards she sets for herself in her pictures. She seems to work Best in the midst of much distraction and chaos. Please turn to Page 34 col. 1
