Collaboration of two friends – Jodi Hoover and Miriam DesHarnais. They met in high school at North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. They went their separate ways to college and then to jobs. They kept in touch. DesHarnais sent the text for "Darts of Love" to Hoover over ten years ago. Hoover would work on it, then get distracted, then go back to it. But finally it came together - text and images. It is their first collaboration.
A tale of love and serendipity.
