Remember Marcel (blog posting from 1-11-12)? I found the original sketch from 2001 that prompted the clay version not long after. The tinted photo beneath is my previous husband, Neil's, photograph. We used this version (as well as a blue one) on our Christmas cards that year. No one threw their cards away after Christmas. We referred to him as the Angel of Abundance. He struck a note, I guess, with many in 2001. I still like Jim's recent photo at the top the most.
I've had the privilege of being a contributing author in Cath Mich's book. It's a powerful collection of stories (including mine) from women who have overcome obstacles in their past to grow toward compassionate strength. I'd highly recommend it!
