Another tough blog to write. This time the loss of a childhood friend. I’ve told you a bit about Liz from time to time in: A Person of Interest and this entry about her film currently available on HBO: My Depression. You can read more about Elizabeth Swados here.
Liz was an incredible creative force. She not only saw beyond the manifestations of physical limitations for herself but for all who crossed her path. I was one of those fortunate ones. Each and every time I had contact with her- stemming all the way back to our youthful camp days– she encouraged my artist-being to stretch beyond anything I was able to consider or understand as possible. I’m eternally grateful for her friendship and I pledge to continue along her path of unbounded creativity. May her memory be for a blessing.
