A Birthday Gift

Earlier today, I took a break from the studio and ran to do a few errands, one of which was stopping in at a huge store to pick up necessities like toilet paper and paper towels. Needless to say the place was packed with people and baskets piled higher than high, many people had two baskets in which they were piling things. It’s no secret, I do not like to shop…blasphemy, right?

World AIDS Day

It was on this day, in what now seems like a hundred years ago, that the Tamarind Foundation planted the first Hope Garden in a small park in the financial district near the World Trade Center. Rose bushes were donated in the memory of loved ones who lost their lives to AIDS. It was a sunny but chilly day but that didn’t stop the volunteers and the kids from neighboring schools from coming out to support and help in the effort.
