Cheryl, what you wrote is exactly true.
"...It's about taking the time to help people feel their own beauty and uniqueness. It's about taking the time to find that connection and exchanging little pieces of yourselves. It's about..... taking the time.
And I'll say it again -- it's not about what they look like, but who they are..."
Your work is an inspiration. I wish we could have you on our Heart Gallery Project.
