    So proud of my talented granddaughter. She has caught the feelings of all Torontonians with the stroke of a brush.

    Thank you for sharing a beautiful and “touching” tribute of “cousins,” countries, and continents. It made me think of the ceiling of Sistine Chapel and that touch of Grace. Your daughter’s artwork suggested other monuments that have joined to mark the indomitable spirit of care, concern, and coexistence to which we must all remain vigilant.

    Towers, of almost every ilk, suggest the attempt of man to overcome an energy greater than themselves [gravity]. Peace, of almost every ilk, suggest man’s ability to overcome a lesser quality of his humanity [belligerence]. Pray for Paris and Work towards Peace.

    P.S. You may remember that I am an architect, too. You may have one, there. Give her and your family my best.

      Thank you for the very thoughtful comment, Anderson. I really appreciate your words and will certainly pass them on to Kristen.

      All the best,
