This is Keryn. She was a teacher at the Montessori school my son attended when he was a young child. When I first started this project she commented, "What a beautiful idea, Ken. I love the thought of you setting aside time in your week to focus on people that you care about, and who care about you. The entire process sounds like a gift." It was a comment that made me look at this project in a different way. It's near the end and it has felt that way all along the way. Spending the time doing these portraits has felt like I was hanging out with you, reflecting on our friendship and the memories of our times together. It's been a gift for me to get to know all of you in a new way through doing your portraits.
