Entry Description

On a cultural mission with jewish background I, Valeria (29), incidentally met well known Hollywood photographer Robert Zuckerman (58) at Art Basel Miami. One week later (NYC) I was introduced to painter Sonja Eisenberg (84). Both artists have gone through hard life: Sonja holocaust survivor, Robert terminally ill. Since those two are the most inspiring persons I met ever since, I arranged to meet. We then in the companionship of each other found what I call 'ourness'. A mix of total acceptance, respect, love, care and looseness among generations. A feeling of equality which is enough to have lived for.
