100APC#3 For Kramer
I painted this early last year for my niece, Kramer. She totally rules. We, the family, often call her, Bug, because of her love for lady bugs.
I wanted to challenge myself by drawing things that were less macabre. I have found that potential buyers are much more receptive to soft or cute things. I managed to produce this. This was a labor of love.
Unfortunately my darling niece lives several hours away from me, so I wasn't aware that her love for lady bugs had since passed. Her mother, my sister in law, loved this piece. So I gave it to her for Christmas this last year.
Kramer is one of my heroes. She is smart, beautiful, and extremely competitive. She is not afraid of hard work to achieve excellence. Her sense of kindness, humor, and honor make me proud every day.
Work hard. Work with love in your soul. The rewards will always warm you.

I dialled her number again. I knew it would be switched off. As it has been since last 5 or 6 years, I've lost the count. But it is her birthday so I couldn't resist.
*Operator saying about number being switched off*
"Hey! I know very well you cannot hear me or even know that I'm still alive. But wish you a very happy birthday. I wish you get all the happiness you deserve. I just hope that someday you will pick up the phone."
*beeping sounds fades*
I don't know why I do it every year even though I know the number will be switched off. There won't be anything other than operator's pre-recorded voice about number being switched off. As it has been for last 5 years. You can call me crazy by all means. I really don't care. I am just clinging to the hope that someday there will be a voice, her voice, on the other side of phone.
Happy Birthday, wherever you are.
