“There are no

seven wonders in the world

in the eyes of children;

there are seven million.”

— Walt Streightiff

wonder is trapped

in the lens of children’s eyes

trusting enchantment

  1. Mary, IMO, This portrait is one of your best works ever. You have perfectly captured the wonder and innocence of this child and of children in general. Gary
