My niece just graduated with an advanced degree in Public Health. I'm so proud of her.
So I wanted to send her something meaningful to celebrate her accomplishment. I knew she could always use some cash (who couldn't?) but I decided to send her a piece of my art instead.
This is a difficult thing to do! What if she doesn't like it? (after all, art is so personal!) What if she doesn't want to hurt my feelings and is stuck with something she has to lug around until I'm gone and she can finally put it in the dumpster. What if she likes it and her friend/husband/partner hates it.
Regardless of all these miss-givings, I mailed this piece to her today. Now I hold my breath.
