  • My youngest grandson from the first marriage of my middle son is Emilio. He is 12 years old now and he has changed: he used to come every day to my house, we painted, he is very gifted and artistic. But since a few months he has changed, he has gone introvert, but does keep doing a lot of crative projects in his room. He does have friends and it doing fine at school.

    It must be preadolecence. Hormones drive us. His mother committed suicide 3 1/2 years ago and so I watch the hormonal changes with a little anxiety in him and his brother.

    I miss Emilio. But yesterday I heard from him. He did not come over. But he wrote me a message: he wanted me to design a cover for a book of stories and poestry he and his classmates have created in school.

    I went to work, first thing this morning. Here is my cover.

    He answered me immediately: Well done, Kiki! Perfect!

    An how do you think I feel with this????
