✨🦠😷✊🏽🗳🌷 Its been a challenging year for all of us. Challenges we share. Challenges all our own. The good days we appreciated. We lost those we love. What comes next looks hopeful. If not, we can handle it. Because no human being got here on their own. We survive together. ❤️

Over the years quite a few people have gotten my paintings tattooed. I spoke with eight of them.

Unrelated to art, I’ve had a significant life event occur recently. My dad died last week. He was such a powerfully positive presence in my life. I’m sharing some photos and the obituary I wrote because, well, he deserves everything I can do to honor him. We held a virtual memorial last night that was tremendously heart-warming. If you ever feel pessimistic about humanity, I assure you we have the potential for good. I know that because of my father. ❤️

Following a full life raising four healthy children into adulthood, being an inseparable companion to his wife, and treating his patients with attention and kindness, Dr James Doyle passed away in the early morning of December first. He died at home in his sleep at age seventy seven, following a challenging year claimed by dementia. Born in New Jersey in 1943, Jim met his wife of forty seven years, Pamela, in a spark-filled moment of love at first sight. Together they raised Adam, Vanessa, Hudson, and Nicholas at their welcoming hilltop home in Brookline, MA. After medical school Dr Doyle became one of the first practitioners of acupuncture in the area in the early 1970s. At his Newton office managed by Pamela, Dr Doyle saw thousands of patients, giving each his full attention. He listened to those under his care. He listened to passersby while on vacation. He listened to his friends and his kids whenever they needed him. Jim was committed to making things whole. He kept us healthy. He maintained his home with own two hands, while Pam provided food for everyone who walked through the door. Jim and Pam biked to work year round, rain or shine. In his free time he collected curb-side bike parts, rebuilt them, and gave a bike to whoever could use one. He loved birdsong, spending time near water, classic comedies, and his wife’s soul-nourishing cooking. Jim managed to overcome prostate cancer and a broken neck, eventually recovering from both with a smile. He was a man who knew that the beauty of life was its impermanence. Jim Doyle was a source of wisdom, well-being, acceptance, and humor. We are grateful for having been his family.
