This is the Second element in this drawing, the sky and bulb being the first.
This is a drawing of my step-fathers eye. An eye thats seventy-eight years old, an eye akin to hammered gold. An eye thats experienced prisoner of war camps and the death of many comrades. Its been witness to beating cancer once and now in the dusk of his years to lung cancer. This symbol speaks of strength and vulnerability; it alludes to the end of one journey and the beginning of another.
