The Bird Mural and the Mausoleum

Andrew is home and working on editing a few manuscripts. This is what he wanted more than anything. some sense of normalcy and not being his cancer every waking minute.

He is still able to get out and about a bit but each day he becomes a bit more fatigued. He is losing weight and gets cold easily. But his spirits are good. And he has good days. Reading and writing are hard work but worth it to him. His prognosis is in months and we don't think he'll see the spring. But one never knows.

If you click on the link above in the title you can see what I've been up to. Pictures of the new huge hand painted mural on the side of the Portland Memorial Mausoleum at Oaks Bottom and pictures inside the mausoleum. It is absolutely amazing in there, full of fascinating and weirdly wonderful things.

The Pieta is an exact replica of Michelangelo's piece, made of marble from the same quarry.

We were allowed on the roof to shoot the mural. A chance I won't get again in my lifetime.
