On this day two years ago a sweet member of our
extended family died, and we are all thinking about
him, and missing him today. And we send love to
his immediate family. He was a wonderful person,
and it was a huge loss.
It was a strange day. I went walking with a friend, who
accompanies me on walks both of us masked, and is doing
her best to help me stay active. It rained very heavily here,
and then the sun came out, and my friend stood at
the end of our walkway ready to go with her sweet
dog. And as we began it rained -- by the top of the street it was
rainy and cold. We walked through the alleyway,
and turned to take a shorter walk, and it began to hail. The hail
became quite intense, and I walked my friend home.
I came inside, made a hot chocolate, went to work
on my current painting for a few minutes, and
the sun came out -- dazzling and brilliant. And that is
spring in Toronto.
The drawing is of my son Christopher when he was in
high school. He was a passionate person then, and
is a kind, and wonderful husband and father.
When I drew this, I think he had no idea how
rich his life would become.
Have a loving your family day.
