#117 – Bittersweet Seventeen (Making Of)

The valentines I never knew,
The Friday night charades of youth,
Were spent on one more beautiful.
At seventeen I learned the truth.

It all started with birthday wishes at dawn … and thinking back, how it all started some 17 years and 9 months ago.

That’s what inspired the choice of the little agitated zoids, to weave progressively over time, the lovely familiar face.
