Our sad girl of Bolinas didn't have any new stories for me. Nor did she share her ambitions. And really, after all these years I don't know much at all about the Garzoli family.

But perhaps, just by viewing his work I've learned some things about the stone-carver who produced this masterpiece. I imagine that hands and fingers are not easy to carve. Obviously, he put a little extra into the work.

I would like to think that she pinned away when her love was untrue. The sculptor was a friend of the young woman and made this small masterpiece in her honor.

So goes my version of the story - of course, there's not a smidgen of truth in it but it makes a nice saga for Valentine's Day.

How romantic. Thank you Nancy. Amazing how we can connect with people like this sculptor without even knowing the actual story.
