    When the child was a child,
    It was the time for these questions:
    Why am I me, and why not you?
    Why am I here, and why not there?
    When did time begin, and where does space end?
    Is life under the sun not just a dream?
    Is what I see and hear and smell
    not just an illusion of a world before the world?
    Does evil really exist?
    How can it be that I, who I am,
    didn’t exist before I came to be,
    and that, someday, I, who I am,
    will no longer be who I am?

    from Song of Childhood
    By Peter Handke
    from the Wim Wenders film "Wings of Desire"

    Thanks, Catherine! Did you notice that the rose pink (innocence?) is actually from the mirror image of the girl's profile?

    I very much appreciate the kudos and lovely sentiment, Robert. It's really great to hear your thoughts on images I post - they are always thoughtful and considered.

    An innocent girl facing all that the world has to offer...good and bad. So poignant, Bob. Well done, as always.
