Friends, Both Close and Far Away.


Last night I met up with my dear Friend (yes, capital "F"), Dan, to see a showing of some of Margaret's work, in San Francisco. The gallery, Ratio 3, was ļ¬ttingly located in the middle of The Mission (district). Margaret, along with a handful of others, were considered to be a part of San Francisco's contribution to the Art World, The Mission School. I had the pleasure of working with both she and Dan at the San Francisco Public Library, where the 3 of us spent hours mending books, talking and scheming. Dan was our ringleader, I suppose, so it was bittersweet to be with him last night to see part of Margaret's remaining collection. It's always been clear that she is/was a very gifted Artist—her legacy and her talents supersede her. I'm so grateful to have known that in addition to all that, she was an incredibly lovely person. This Sunday will mark the ten years since she died, and it was nice to see that people are still celebrating her accomplishments and her life. We should all be so lucky.
