What am I going to do with these forty originals when all said and done and certainly I can't give them away because that gesture would create animosity which I don't want and purpose.

Courtesy of my wife Jean photographing skills, this photo will be used towards the book titled Indian Residential School Illustrations by Mishibinijima
book launch scheduled June 28, 2017 at Brampton PAMA art gallery where everyone can view forty piece art project.

At sixty-three years old viewing this photograph noticing the weight loss since Prostate Cancer, Strep Throat and Gallbladder health issues since turning sixty and weight being today at one hundred and eighty nine pounds, life's purpose be seen gradually where only you will know an elder shared once.

I'm still very fortunate no prescription pharmaceutical medication as I see others in my community prescribed in quantities and remembering my mother with eighteen to twenty daily pills which was disturbing to see.
