I found you through a connections of thoughts, through a open door of friendship, through a moment of free thought and new friend, Suzanne and a new teacher, Floots!
Your art is wonderful, I will return often.

There is someone also present, a lucky boy perhaps, asking himself his freedom ...

And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying

You got it, tikkis, and the Masefield association was in my mind. Might be a grown man or woman, rather than a boy or girl, though.
