Again, I desired to take a break from the world of politics and strife. Today’s theme is “young people and children”. This is a portrait of Mr Repin’s daughter when she was just a little girl. Refreshing… our children can sometimes bring us back to an understanding of what is basic and needful, do they not?

Our children have not changed… we should be wise enough to see that and act accordingly. If anyone tells you that “people have changed”… do give them a choice word or two!
