this is a sketch of my dad drawn by my daughter sequoyah. yesterday was my dad's birthday. kids call him"pop". i don't think a photo could capture him the way she did. we sent this to him as his card. my dad's name is albert. he was named after einstein. true story. he is indeed very much like einstein. sometimes those two grey long side tufts of hair with a good gust of wind is when you can clearly see the resemblance. my dad can fix everything. he was a medic in the korean war and he still also has this amazing medical intuition where he has saved many people. i often wonder if he would be different if he wasn't named after einstein. let me also say that my dad helps me in my art . he creates some of my ideas i send him as a sketch into wood. oh don't know if you can tell in the drawing but my dad is very proud of being german. he even listens to ompah music on long trips. my dad always told me if i need anything give a whistle. he lives in georgia, i live in upstate new york. i am still whistling.
