The World Is Bigger Together

Recently my son created a drawing that revealed a little about how he was feeling while we were apart for a year. In 2018, I left Japan to work in California, leaving my wife and two little ones behind. But only temporarily was the intention but the time apart was 1 day too long for us all. The drawing he created was something that he shared with his fellow classmates, albeit virtually this week. It shows two images — one where we are all apart with tears flowing and the other one where we are all together again. The blue and green represents the earth and the black represents space. If you look closely, the picture of us together shows the earth ever so slightly bigger. How appropriate. Thank you son for touching my heart with your delicate and thoughtful artwork.
