Lady Bird

I have to say that I am sad that Lady Bird Johnson has passed on. In Austin, where I went to school, she was always a hovering presence, somehow softening the other LBJ’s legacy, monumentally inscribed in that library on the other side of the University of Texas campus.  I saw in my lifetime Texas roadsides transformed from billboard clutter to wildflower beauty. Just think, every road trip we take in this country, down highways of green and petals, allows us all to witness her grace.  So long, Lady Bird.
