Some Art

My sister Marcia sent us a couple of squares to decorate with crayons that she will incorporate into a baby quilt, and this is what I sent. Notice that I didn't let the kids do anything beyond henry adding his name to the second one. It was too fun and I'm too greedy!

And here are two pictures Henry and I made for my dad. I felt sort of silly and regretful after I put the words on mine, but it just happened. One of the things I'm struck by as I sit all the way over here on the other side of the country, is the profound gratitude I have for folks who come to visit my dad. It is so good of them to come. I just really wish I could be there to add my visits to the mix on a regular basis and since I can't, at the very least I want those who do sit with him to know how much I appreciate the fact that they are there. Anyway. I was compelled to add the words and I think my uneasiness with it comes more from my art having exposed my true feelings about the situation.

Henry's picture is really great, too. The colors are so rich. I wish I'd reminded him to sign and date it. Marcia, if you're reading this, jot down on the back the who and when before you tack it up, would you? THANKS!
