Abstract

Mark Liebenow Candles burn for the dead, for the battle lost. They burn for the living. They burn across my mantel, a line of candles to guide Evelyn to where she is going and to bring me some remnant of hope. It's All Hallows' Eve, the first of the three days for memory, honor, and prayer, and the candles burn to hold light against the encroaching darkness. On this ancient night the Celtic people believed that the barrier between our world and the next world thins, and the living and dead can dimly see and communicate with each other. I go outside into the blackness of the backyard, stand in the slim, veiled light of a gossamer moon, and peer into the ocean of constellations, hoping that Ev is finding her way through, that she can see me, and that I might feel her close. In the morning of All Saints' Day, I break from the silence of home and take BART into San Francisco for the Ansel Adams exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art. The collection includes his early experimental work with large-format photography when he was searching for a way to say what he was
