Don, I met you years ago while helping get SAQA on its feet in Modesto, and have been an art quilt colleague and friend of your mother's for many years.

The art you were to bring forth was then a gleam in your eye. Congratulations on the current solo show -- the work is wonderful!!!

Here's a note I emailed Yvonne who had sent me links when I asked about you during her recent Tucson (where I now live) AZ visit:

"hi yvonne
i finally had time to sit down and see the video clip of Carly's opening. thanks for the link! it was fun, interesting. both she and Don manage to manifest a spirited energy - an existential delight - AND a deeply human concern/awareness of some darker aspects of contemporary times.

these kids: they deserve a better world than we might leave them if we don't step up to the plate and tidy up our act. i deeply believe in our youth and want to see them set off in the best of situations. i think it means change what we can, get ready for the unexpected directions they will take us in as they articulate and prioritize goals.

Don and Carly's artwork gives me heart,

Please share with Carly. Good luck to both of you,
