On my way to Italy, where I plan to swim in the salty Mediterranean Ocean, rides boats and planes and bikes; where I will dine with family under bright sun and briskly walk through crowded streets full of tourists and locals. This is going to be a great couple weeks, although I am missing a friend’s wedding, I am happy to be spending time with my Omi in what could be our last trip with her. Up up and away I go.
My Omi is battling cancer and I am putting this out there to manifest a full recovery to her and release of pain. I love her so much. She has given me so many gifts and exposed me to new talents. She has always fought for me and supported me in every way someone can be supported. I bring love and hope to her now. This photo was taken in 2005 on a trip with the whole family to Vail during an exceptionally hard time for me, I was about 20 and battling severe anxiety after moving back from art school in San Francisco. Omi, Cass and I drove up together and I had an amazing time in the mountains. … I love you, Omi
