“A box without hinges, key or lid,
yet golden treasure inside is hid.”
What might be the treasure doesn’t really matter. What matters is a child bringing it to his mother. This keepsake photograph is all about body language and symbolism. There is such a connection between little people and their mothers. It is almost one continuous line to each heart. Mothers are there when an adventure happens . . . or a treasure is found . . . or something needs explaining. The little footprints in the sand show that Holden is playing close to his mother, but far enough away to find things. Over and over the boy runs a few feet away and over and over his little feet return . . . each time with something different in his hands. It is the work of children to play.
“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”
