This drawing is about the innocence of childhood. The name is descriptive but the moment is simple: little boys playing. The sun dances off of them as it shines through a big leafy maple tree that is giving patchy shade. They are safe, cared for, protected and free from war, poverty and discrimination. It is a moment I wish for all parents and children but one that I know is unattainable for many which creates a tension but also a sense of thankfulness. I am thankful.
