About the Picture

How far do our winged ideals bend before they break? When they break, so do our children. Life doesn't make it easy to keep on going with our projects. How many artists, philosophers, writers, musicians, dancers and actors walk through life hobbled? A parent cares for a dead child sometimes with a greater passion than the parent who witnesses the fruition of their offspring.
