Leo Dillon’s Birthday

th-9

It’s March 2, Leo Dillon’s birthday, and I’ve been thinking about him all day. Seeing his photograph warms me, and I call Diane to mark the day. Their accomplishments, and what they’ve brought into our complicated, sometimes broken world, are so bright and shining. As people, nothing every stopped them from doing the work they loved; they started out on a wing and a prayer with an abundance of brilliant talent, and over five decades created paintings and books that can never be forgotten. Even as books increasingly go out of print and become unavailable, I am certain the Dillons’ art and the stories they illustrated will outlast us all and will continue to bring joy and delight to children and adults around the world.

Happy birthday, Leo. I miss you. We all miss you. But your light continues to shine, and it always will. Love, Bonfire
