John Mauriello’s lost pizza recipe… the inspiration for an art show and a community-wide fundraising effort?
I had always wanted to create a piece that showed the joy of a mother watching over her child – in this case Lake Tahoe.
Here’s an idea.
What if this community had a center?

There were no homes on the lots surrounding it. It was like the fringe of the forest had been sprinkled with the Spirit of Christmas.
