Surrounded by friends

I was moved by the gesture of Sarah Hazel, who painted a picture this week for me from my images of Breckenridge Park (see this piece and some of her other work here). After showing it in her upcoming exhibition, she is giving it to me and Christine. It really made my day (and what a perfect day to make!) To me it represents all the meaningful ways I am undeservedly shown support and love by so many.

My parents and Christine's parents are both in town here and we all had dinner together in our temporary apartment. That is, if wonton soup broth counts as a meal. The Jonssons stopped by and their boys showed their love by performing. Each played the violin and then they sang together for me. Here we are on the night before...

Reminds me of when Glenn Lucke & Tom Bartkoske & who - I don't remember, did a tribute for Gauthier by pounding out some horrible notes on instruments they'd never before touched in their lives. (Were you even around for that??) What REMINDS me of that is youthful enthusiasm - I'm sure the boys in your pictures were much more talented.
