Cindy Woods is my friend. She is a remarkable woman and a gifted artist. Beloved Cindy is in hospice care, her battle with cancer lost. Knowing her has been a revelation, a surprise, a delight and an education. Her unwavering gaze at the difficult things of life and her incredible line-drawings and sketches have made an enormous impression on me. She is a sweet, brave, amazing woman whose life is drawn out on her blog and on her Flickr site. I cannot recommend a visit to her site enough. She has touched me profoundly and I feel strongly that her’s is a talent and a spirit that needs to be broadcast far and wide. If you follow these links you will see what I mean.
