    Nice picture Margot! I love the amazing research you do and I thank you for the publication you wrote about Tatoos and Olive Oatman! Don’t ever stop! You are giving America information that we need to read and understand! It was wonderful to have meet you over fifteen years ago!

    Best regards,

    Patricia, I somehow only just saw this. Thank you so much for your kind words! And for your help with the Oatman research. It was a pleasure to meet you.

    Hello Margot,
    I just read your beautiful piece about your mother”s death and I am so moved, thank you. I wish I could have talked with her, an incredible person who was able to express herself under the most difficult of circumstances and who raised a daughter with the same qualities. The words timeless, love and gifts spring to mind.

    I am 58 years old and was diagnosed with multiple myeloma 10 weeks ago. The time has been filled with efforts to integrate everything that I can find, while also learning to compartmentalize a bit, which is not a strong suit. I will keep this piece close, it encourages me to think about the art of living and dying, and to do a bit of writing and drawing along the way. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

    With gratitude,
