There are gift givers, and then there are gift givers. If not for the ever-fascinating, eccentric literary scope of my aunt, I might never have been introduced to artist Maira Kalman and her 2007 work The Principles of Uncertainty. Simply beyond words, Kalman’s work is irresistibly fresh and lyrically moves beyond the page as she paints her way through the whimsy and introspections of life. Like freshly cut flowers dosed with a smiling bit of sunshine, Principles extends an easy, alternative stroll down the hurried lane of life. Treat yourself.
