Unconventional, and lovely. Very telling story of an American hero, in a concise manner. Didn't know she wanted something else. No telling where life leads us.

Matisse, yes.

Welcome back.

I don't believe I've had the pleasure of meeting you ... but now that I have discovered you and your very impressive blog, I'll return.

We lived in DC in the late 60's - for two years and thoroughly loved every moment of it. I get back once a year on business. It's been exciting watching the changes over the decades. Can't wait to see (in person) the amazing sculpture you shared.
