In memory of our friend Nick Gomez-Hall.
We share these to celebrate the life of a profound artist, the gentle and thoughtful friend who became a part of our community this summer, and who's presence made our group more whole.
Nick shared his work to us with an openness. A new friend who appeared and brought a soft-spoken and honest vulnerability. When other's spoke, he was present, actively engaged, often by simply listening from a corner of our circle in a pair of cowboy boots.
Here is a moment I'll always hold in my heart: Once, during a conversation where I was struggling to put words to a sentiment, and project still in-progress, I'll never forget the smirk Nick shared as I looked up. Pure support, a smile that made me feel, 'Yes, it's okay to feel anyway you feel.'
