I appreciated the mass Valentines being shared. Helped a few kids make them for friends teachers and Moms and Dads. Valentine is universal.
Mine was not anticipated. An adult asking about my personal life, and by a child asking to spell my name. So I did get a hand made card, priceless, I scored. William who comes to read, stealthily comes with something pink behind his back Sunday. morning. . So cute. Plus his little brother Pablo come to get the Valentine they created.
I had some time ago taken photos, before I knew them as they were racing in the alley. I an ex Indy official photog got in the act “Gentlemen start your Engines” even had a blk and wht kerchief. So the photos were a surprise. CVS had Special for 100 prints. The beneficiaries were two little neighbor girls. Dating 2019 2020 to 2021 as life ticked away in our little street. Memories from when we first met after Hurricane Wilma and as we got to know one another. Even included Ms Tammy who delivers books occasionally to my LFL. Helped purchase a bike for one of the girls at Christmas time but not for Christmas but because she was good. She did not attend my classes often as she had to care for her little brother and little cousins.. The trip to the zoo with the neighborhood kids. A new Baby in the hood, things they will not remember as they get older all documented for them.
Don’t share personal trials as this week was stressful. Working on the Unity Wall last week I got rained out and so did my iPad. Disaster, I was disconnected from the world as my iPad sat in 5 lb. of rice 9 days still nothing. Today Sunday I went to UFIX on Lake Ave. Mathew there was awesome, they are able to take on Macs can do factory warranted. Who knew. So I share.
If your curious about this blog it’s 10 years in the making primarily visual as my background is photography my first gig being the Indy 500, ended w Cruise ship pictures of London. Published in Time, Rolling Stone, etc. etc. but ck out the photos especially Throw Back Thurs. last week obviously was not published but now it is.
