A little disconcerting that I was writing about matters of mortality last night, as this morning I received the devastating news that Phoebe Washer, the stunningly talented 20-year-old artist daughter of our friends Jack and Drew, had fallen from a cliff yesterday while hiking.
Phoebe was a luminous soul and she will be missed. I'm astonished and tearful that such a bright light could be extinguished so suddenly. She had her first solo art show at barely 18, and nearly sold it out. Her art was whimsical and haunting, and always moving.
Jack and Drew and everyone who loved Phoebe, my heart is with you.
