Weekly photo Challenge:
This my friend Brian. We go to some Art Openings together. Brian, a well know local Minnesota Artist is a brain cancer survivor. We met about eight years ago at the support group, BIG (Brain Injury Group) of Minneapolis. Graciously run which was started by “Coffee John” also A brain injury survivor and activist for the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance.
We used to work at the Minneapolis Art Institute, but I didn’t know him then. Brian knows many people in the local Art world. After my brain injury in ’08 he helped me get out to Art Openings. Even in -20 F!
I was inspired by Brian’s constant, positive attitude and kindness to others.
Brian brought me back to art and kindness.
We continue to go to art openings to this day. Recovery is day to day.
Art Saves Lives.
Brian has a pretty garden. This spring I noticed this cactus growing in his garden! This is Minnesota where the temperatures go down to -20 F in winter and sometime -40F with wind chill! This cactus lives outside all year.
