As usual, Ivaan's portrait will be on the wall, gazing down at us (and the food). I know he's proud that he's left such an important legacy and that he and his art are still as much appreciated as ever, nearly six years after he departed the planet.
So, here's to you, beloved husband. Many happy returns of the day. This photo, taken by our friend Slava in August 2008, captures Ivaan to perfection. Happy Birthday, Ivaan.
