Victor was very special to me, we connected as kindred spirits when someone first brought me to his camp. He was so interested in people, you and your family and your ideas. He liked to talk about art and abstract things like vibrations and frequencies and the artist’s gaze. He didn’t mind any new people or if they came back to his camp without you. He was always ready to make you some wickedly strong coffee. There was no way to reach him so it was always a special treat to find him home or once run into him at the co-op. I’m sorry I never took him to see the impressionists at the Clark like he once asked. The last time I saw him someone clued me in he was at the old farmhouse. It was so kind of the landowner to give Victor the space and time to live as he wanted to. I hope he was able to study and interact in some way with the people who cared for him in the nursing home like he enjoyed doing. My love to his family, you had a true original!
