…here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart…

    • Patsy, my powerful friend- I thought and spoke of you many times during that day. Katelyn was there in spirit, and I carried your friendship in my heart. Next year, let’s go to the very top together. Always with love and solidarity-M.

      • There’s a good chance that we will be accompanied by a new member of our family when next we meet. Bruce and I have been chosen as a match for a 7 year old girl in San Francisco! We find out more about her on August 6th. We’ll keep you posted.

    • Jennifer Thompson Quinton, a talented friend living in Singapore. I’m also transfixed by this rendering of our boy. Jennifer understood Parker’s bottled energy and transfered it to canvas. I’m so indebted to her.–M
