A local photographer Mimi Paris in Scottsdale offered her talents to take "porch portraits" at the height of social isolation. We were to depict what we were doing during the quarantine. After our portrait, Mimi hid a beautiful hand painted rock in our yard. I was so moved by her kind gesture and the beautiful rock I decided to learn how to paint rocks with encouraging messages and leave them all around our neighborhood. This rock art has turned into an obsession and I have gifted them to everyone I know. In the meantime, my new friend Mimi and I go on weekly walks and she has nurtured this new hobby we now share.
