This piece is for a person I met a few years ago, quite unexpectedly, Angela Sasser. When I was struggling with a source of inspiration and purpose for my art, I met this woman who seemed an endless fountain of talent. I didn't know many people, and she quickly became a very good friend. Now, she is the best friend I have, always there without wanting anything in return. She is patient and understanding even when the worst of me comes out. She greets the troubles of the world with an optimistic outlook, always offering advice and selflessly offering help. If there ever was a true angel on this earth, Angela would be one. This is for you, Angela; I am thankful to have you as a friend.
