Like all loose ends, February's beg to be tied. February has been a bittersweet month. I hate and don't hate to see it go. March brings spring, of course, even though on this cold, dark night that seems improbable. Ends, beginnings--- that age-old song and dance. Casey and I often talk on the phone via Skype with a webcam and sometimes I sketch her as we talk. My friend Anne of Prêt à Voyager fame met with my daughter and me on our recent trip to Paris. Anne is a graduate student at American University in Paris, where my daughter is applying for admission next fall. Here are two of many Annes I've drawn recently. I'm never satisfied. And then there's breakfast at the dinner and sketching in the car---life's constants. Happy March everyone!
