Lorraine, your story of your experiences get to the very heart of what it means to live and make your life into art. I'm not only speaking of Liz Warren and Michael Lacapa, but of you. Just think how many people you've affected! The memories and stories from our childhood are the deepest.

Kathy Nakagawa

This is such a wonderful memory and story of Mr. Lacapa--and how lucky for the students to have him, you and Liz to learn from! Your story reminds me of a novel titled The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier. In the book, there is an alternative world where people who have passed away live on and continue to tell stories, as long as someone in the "real" world is still there to remember them. Your memory ensures Michael Lacapa's stories and art live on.
