There are childhood memories that never leave one's side... that, in fact, throughout life take on meaning.

Decades ago, I had a play date at a friend’s home; I remember a large wall meticulously covered with dozens, possibly a hundred, of versions of the same line drawing... the same line drawing except that each was very slightly different from the one that came before it.

Today I find solace in the act of doing and redoing; in repetition there is growth and the knowledge that I am that much closer than I was... As Georgia O'Keeffe said, "I believe that if I paint this mountain enough, God will give it to me."
