|Tara and Henry|
I was happy to hear the clattering again recently. I gave Henry another load of cans and asked after Tara. He not only said she was doing well, but later than day wheeled her the 1/2 mile to the studio to introduce me to her! I was touched to be so honored. I wish I'd had the presence of mind at the time to invite her in for a studio tour but I didn't want to overwhelm her. My intent is to fill her apartment with real original art that she might choose herself from among my work.
Truth is that we are so thoroughly surrounded by thousands of acts of love and kindness all the time that we grow blind to them. The reason why there is such bad stuff in the news is that it is so astonishingly unusual. It is not a cruel world but one so filled with love that when there is misfortune we are transfixed by it. Let us not forget the truth of an undying love that grows on and on, passed from one to another, often in the most unexpected ways!
