The Story behind my drawing:

Early morning. A non-dominant hand drawing of the corner where my spouse always sits gives me a chance to reflect on what it would mean to me if that chair were empty. She's received a diagnosis of liver cancer and the options from here are not clear. We'll do everything we can to make the right choices never knowing if they are the right choices. For now, the chair is her space, surrounded by treasures we've brought home from vacations. The tree a metalwork sculpture by a woman in Asheville whose husband sold her art out of his gas station. The plate a find on a trip before we moved down South, a reminder of lapping water and ocean waves.

My connection to #Vancouver or what Vancouver evokes to me:

I have visited Vancouver once, and will always remember it as the only place I've been where one can dip their toes in a bit of ocean water, scan a modern skyline and see snow capped mountains beyond. Almost three decades ago, and the memory brings a smile to my face every time.
