Endings and beginnings

Tonight is the end of term on one fast track course I'm teaching online, and
tomorrow a new one begins.  So I am flat out working to see
one course through, and make sure the new one opens as smoothly
as possible.

I'm posting a sketch of a former student, now a friend.
Once in a while a student keeps in touch with me after a course
is finished, and that is always a pleasure.

Pooja has come out to art shows, visited us at home, and she
is a wonderful friend. I did this sketch preparatory to doing a
portrait painting.  Then her schedule and mine got too busy for
us to make time to finish it.  Pooja is a frontline Health Care
worker -- one of the people we are honouring when we make
noise in our neighbourhoods at 7 or 7:30 p.m.

To our Health Care workers during COVID-19.  Thank you
for your wonderful work. Thank you Pooja.
