I worked on this drawing today of one of my superheroes. The portrait is not
accurate, but the feeling of excitement is there and that’s important. Who
are my superheroes? I have way too many to list them all. But I start with my
husband, and my family, then my friends, and all of you out there. And
everyone who’s a front line worker is my hero, and everyone trying
to improve the world in whatever way they can by being loving, by being kind,
 by being enthusiastic and creative.

This is an in Inktober drawing, and I’m happy to give you something along
that theme. I’m teaching tonight and my students are all superheroes -- studying
online – that takes strength, courage, and creativity for sure.

I think what matters the most to me right now, is to try as hard as possible to
be happy and to notice what's good in the world. I also want us to take a stand,
to write politicians, to have our voice for about what isn’t working.

Please stay safe and stay healthy.
