“You hold me up when you are kind.”
A special message of thanks for our friend Monique Gray Smith from friend picikîskosîs (chickadee) and from Sol and me. The quote from Monique’s own book, You Hold Me Up / ê-ohpiniyan, is a perfect fit for chickadee, both literally and figuratively as he perches on the very birdseed wreath that gives him sustenance on this winter day. Thanks, Monique: we are all delighted to be part of your team!
