For Miriam

We spent part of the month in a “social distancing times two” situation when my Beautiful Saxon Princess was tested for Covid 19. Our family physician was concerned about symptoms that came to light during a regular check up so our family spent our days lurking in our individual lairs – BSP kept our bedroom while I camped in the studio while Meghan and her family pretty  much had the run of the rest of the place.

As most of my collectible “stuff” is located in the studio I was able to avoid feeling sorry for myself but after 42+ years of marriage its hard to sleep alone. Long ago I found out that doing something for someone else is the best mood elevator EVER so I spent my time putting together some Tinkerbell art for my grand-niece Miriam.

Modified Tinkerbell art that is.

Life had dealt Miriam a pretty flat hand of cards and she spends most of her time immobile. Speech and vision problems isolate her even further so video provides most of her entertainment. She loves the color and motion of “chop-socky” shows like Inframan and has a particular fondness for Tinker-Bell so I came up with posters for her depicting Tink as alternately a Rambo-type adventurer and a crew member from the original Star Trek series.

  1. RE: Your brother testing positive. My heart goes out to you. Covid 19 often manifests itself in different ways with some folks testing positive but never showing symptoms to any great extent…but from what I gather that is the exception rather than the rule. With my age and health issues I’m in that “greatest risk” category so I am very careful.

    I do hope that your brother ends up one of the lucky ones.

  2. Is it me, or does your Tinkerbell have a very adult look of mischief in her eye? So sorry to hear the demon Covid is rattling your doorhandle. I hope it passes you all by.
