On Boxing-day I had a nice meal with family at a retirement residence restaurant. In the entrance artwork by residents was displayed and I came across this painting. The painting reminded me of childhood summers - of standing on the beginning edge of life - of wondering at the marvel of the world and contemplating things yet to come. A work painted by a person with a hand now frail, but a mind that remembered this moment as if it were only yesterday. And maybe for the artist this moment was just yesterday, perhaps that is the secret of life, to embrace every new day as if the world has just begun.
