Dan is absolutely one of the most dedicated of all Baltimore's race volunteers. It's a rare event when he doesn't give his services - and that usually only happens when he's already volunteering at another event that same day!

Found!

My sister Suzy used to be an artist's model, but I couldn't find the sculptor's name who had used her to pose as "Eve".


Well, on Monday, my husband and I went up to New Jersey to deal with Suzy's things that had been placed in storage, and with piles of old letters and bills, and paperwork, I found a postcard from the sculptor's studio, with the sculptor's note (& his name spelled correctly!) on it.


"When I am at my best, I would like to believe that the public can feel my artwork reaching to the depths of their souls, as it comes from mine."
- Michael Shacham

This was my sister, in a different time of her life, before the cancer.
