weekword | HISTORY


history
his story

To me history is something I'm right now the last chain of. History is those before me. History is also his story. Both ways of seeing history coincident in this drawing of my father. It is one of the last drawing I made of him. He was the best of story tellers!

Anairam chose the weekword. For other participants, see:Linda Sue, Sarah, Leenie , Anne, Valentina, Aris, Aimee, Esti, Veja Cecilia, Nicky, Sarah the jeweller , Line, and Cindy!

Fint att du har hunnit teckna av honom såhär. Och jag tycker att man verkligen "minns" dom där situationerna bättre.

Verkligen tråkigt när människor man tycker om inte finns här längre...

This is a lovely drawing, Alexandra! I love the unfinished quality of it. It suggests that there is more to know about this person, but those details will remain hidden from us, perhaps even from you. I guess one can never know everything about one's parents!
