A little boy, Warren, from South Bridge, Wilmington, Delaware, growing up in the 1970’s without his mother and father present in the home will certainly need someone or something to be a guiding light in life. The absence of male leadership will certainly rob little Warren of all the things fathers are supposed to teach their firstborn sons. Things like speak in public–there is power in the spoken word, or shake a hand–strong shake and look ’em in the eye. Clearly, there is so much more than the two things mentioned yet this writer is aware that you have a list all your own of what makes a man a man in your eyes. What about the needed ingredients a birth mother is presumed to supply for balancing fathers way?

The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. The various branches of creative activity, such as painting, music, literature, and dance. What is art, Alex? Yes, art has just been defined for it is within the arts that little Warren would grow while under the tutelage of Kathryn, his mother’s mother. Kathryn would weave his fabric of life with a thread that goes on repetitively in a simple singular phrase upon which all subsequent learning and living is covered. There is an art to everything you do.
Warren is now 50 something years old, and while, Kathryn rests in peace since November 2001. Together they lived by expressing their human creative skill and imagination in a visual form, producing works to be appreciated for their beauty and emotional power. The creative living that has become a norm, grandparents raising grandchildren, has provided us with next level artists unencumbered.
