We live in a family neighborhood. Helaine and I are empty nesters, but we thought having kids around would keep us young. It has.
Our neighborhood is filled with exquisitely wonderful children of every shade. It’s in a place like Irvine where you realize what immigrants bring to our country and how welcoming Americans can be.
When word of my cancer got out to the neighbors their kids responded with hand drawn cards and posters. They delivered them and this group hug around a month ago.
I put the cards in a corner. Kept safely, but out-of-sight. Steffie had a better idea.
She’s brightened my studio by dedicating this corner to the beautiful and inspiring artwork of the neighbor kids. It turned out really nice. Now it can inspire me every day.
