I Almost Cried

2017 October 11

This came in the mail today and I almost cried. Someone who works at Cranbrook House sent this to me. They tried once and it was returned, and they tracked me down and resent it. Finally after forwarding it found its way here.

Enclosed was a thank-you note and a photo of an etching I made in 1978, when I was a teenager at Cranbrook School. The note reads:

Dear Mr Cafiero - Just a short note to tell you how much I enjoy seeing your artwork that is displayed at Cranbrook House on a daily basis. I love to see writing in artwork and cloth fabric designs. The piece you created is simple, interesting and imaginative! I felt I’d be remiss in not taking a moment to thank you for sharing your talents. [name] Cranbrook House Employee.

I think the author of this letter deserves thanks from me! I will formulate an appropriate response.

P.S. I didn’t even know there was anything of mine hanging in Cranbrook House!
