Wrote a column today for Absolute Arts. Believe the subject–Dealing With Charity Art Auctions–will inspire plenty of impassioned response.
The kid I wrote about in Paternal is living with us this summer. Means a great deal to me to extend this kind of structure, and warmth, to someone whose dad split on him. He’s very close to my youngest son, to all of us for that matter. Think we’ll take him to Colorado with us: climb a 12,000 foot peak; do a little white-water rafting; watch the boys chase girls around Breckenridge; later go mountain-biking in Utah, and watch them chase girls around Moab. Yeah, he’ll love it. My wife and I will be amused.
