Earlier this week, I posted a journal requesting
a bit of generosity from you folks.
Bunni, one of our resident artists
and all round great person,
broke one of her hard drives.
With it went all the pictures of
her older work, her current projects...
...And the vast majority of photos of
her daughter, Lily, during her first years.
We accumulated the funds, sent
a nice care package her way, and in
return, she cranked out quite a lot of
art to her benefactors!
Suffice to say, the hard disk recovery
was a success.
She got her pictures back.
Even more win.

There were a few pictures of her grandmother,
just randomly appearing in there.

We recovered more than just the memory
of those we have now.
We recovered the memory of those
we have lost.
Good work, people.
I'm proud of all of you.
