I am so proud of Wing Lee who is a cutter for major TV shows and
movies.  Meaning he cuts the designs that will become the
clothing you see in the shows. The other day he cut and
sewed 72 face masks in his home studio, to help the healthcare
workers who are running short of masks.  And his masks look
beautiful.  Plus he said that he might make 28 more the next day.

I admire Wing's resilient spirit in this hard time.  Normally
he goes to some exciting place for his birthday, like
New York City, but this year was at home alone with his

I love this portrait of Wing, because he's set against another
place he loves to be, and we share that delight. The love of
the ocean.

I haven't seen Wing in person for a couple of years, he
travels a lot, and was in Europe for two months around
Christmas working on a series.  But I feel like we keep
in touch through Social Media.

So thank you so much Wing for putting your talents to
work to help people who need your talent so much right
now -- the front line health workers.

Having a staying home and staying safe day.
