I missed a spontaneous reunion in Chicago recently with these three really great artists. They are each creatively very brave and strong. Thanks to them, we laughed a lot in the face of plenty of wacky art-school maelstrom. In spite of myself, I also learned some things. Then, right out of school, they delivered me to the West - literally and figuratively. As happy as I am about that, getting this photo made me miss Chicago and them.
