My friend Dave says he has an invisible post-it on his head that says, “Tell me all about it.” I’m thinking Dave is right, but the note is not so invisible. Hey, there is always a line of folks waiting to talk to him.

“Unload” is part of my Sock Monkey Oracle Series. Each piece of artwork in this series depicts a state of being that encourages reflection. As I worked on this painting, I thought about Dave’s patience and his kind demeanor. May you all have such a friend to help lighten your load.
