"My mother said to me, "If you become a soldier you'll be a general; if you become a monk you'll end up as the pope." Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso."

"My Mother Kept a Garden"
Read by LeScintilla
My mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life its start.
She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem...
And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough~
But not too much because she knew
I'd need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong~
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.
I am my Mother's garden.
I am her legacy~
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me
I love doing video montages, the creation of these short films amounts to hours of work. I search for video footage in films, documentaries etc...and use clips only a few seconds long to create my own stories.
