[5:48:14 PM] *Cara Schingeck sent Video call snapshot 202*

[5:54:01 PM] Cara Schingeck: This snapshot you took of me means so much because you captured a very telling moment in time of so much—my eyes are looking at a painting I made of a crucifix that hangs in the hallway to the back door that leads to the garden. The light in my eyes is from the garden windows. The paper on the back windows is to block out the light so that it wouldn’t shine through and be too bright and block out us and our view of each other just so you know why I put paper on my windows in the background of the snapshot that you took. I may look like I am sad and just now becoming happy and that is true because I am talking to you my wonderful brother, There is nothing wrong with that, that is good. Family is a good reason to be happy again when times get tough. i love you
