Drucilla’s embroidery on antique lace of a pit bull’s earnest warm face hangs in my living room by the front door, blessing the comings and goings of a multispecies household. Across the muzzle, the embroidered words ‘I give you my tomorrow’ gestate in my heart, tying me to the artist, the dogs, the scholarship, the projects, the times when grace can still flourish in hard lives, shredded lives. It is a grace to share stitched time in Drucilla’s humanimal worlds.
