The following people have shown kindness toward my artistic endeavors or inspired me. Most are people I’ve encountered this year, some from years past. I am grateful for even the smallest interaction, because sometimes even the smallest interaction can make a huge difference, in a work of art, in a day, in a life. Here then, the people who have made a difference in 2014. Thank you one and all.
