Sean drew me this snowman Christmas card in 2008. It is amazing to look at it right now and realize that was 6 years ago. I began writing him letters in 2007 and I have another drawing he made me that same year, it’s a palm tree at sunset. These early works are a reminder of how long we have been friends. How long Sean has been working and improving his artistic talent, I can really see it in his drawings. But it’s also a reminder of how long this innocent young guy has been locked away. How many holiday seasons he has missed out on. Away from family and friends, away from the natural beauty of the place he once called home.
