I was just admiring this drawing and remembered what a wonderful feeling I get every time I see it. It’s easy to think how nice someone is just because they created something for you, but in this case, it’s more than that. It shows a depth of attention paid to the smallest details.
Also, if you’ve ever been an artist, or even known one, you understand the sentimental connection they get with their creations and, short of being offered a truckload of money, they dare not part.
Put simply, when I look at it, I remember just how important I must be to someone. And for me to acknowledge that fact is just shy of remarkable.October 27, 2009
