an inspirational sculpture

Ms. Erkenbrecher has been my inspiration for decades. I used to walk or drive through Spring Grove Cemetery on and off for decades when I lived in Northside, a neighborhood to the west of it. This sculpture, at the grave site of one of Cincinnati’s prominent families, is a monumental (pun intended) inspiration. The woman is writing, one breast exposed, relaxed and imposing. Perhaps she is waiting for her lover to bring her a mug of coffee. Ah, such is my fantasy! Whatever the story behind her creation, this goddess-writer-woman inspires me to get down to business and w-r-i-t-e!
