As I was working on the art,
you kept popping into my mind...
I knew it was time.
This is week 27...
Sometimes it feels like the time is creeping by
like it's flying by,
and I just can't keep up.
that time of year I always begin
to reflect on my life.
...the choices I have made
...everything I have accomplished
things I never did.
It's a confusing state to exist in...
it happens every year
around this time.
It's become some bizarre kind of normal to me.
the things I share with you
even in a letter.
...some people just
our complex relationship with art.
I don't really know,
I'm just glad that it is.
You are such a talented artist...
the most empathetic,
and amazingly tempered strength.
What a phenomenal combination of traits...
they make you a wonderful person.
I hope that you are happy.
I hope that you are creating...
just to MAKE is vital.
Are you going to make more of the still life's?
It would be great
to see a series of these
reflecting our culture--
such as it is these days.
