He was too good looking for his own good.

This is my first attempt at posting a picture. I made this piece in 2008. The picture is actually my Great Uncle Martin as a young boy. Even at this tender age you can already see he had that special something that set him apart. As an adult he was one of the best story tellers I have ever met and had sparkling blue eyes. When he told a story he could animate it with his expresions and gestures as if he was a player on a stage bringing the characters to life. I certainly don't have his capacity to "become the rabbit" but I like to think he played a part in my penchant for story telling. I will hope it will serve me well in my attempt at blogging!
