Our beloved daughter Julia sent me the image below.
The wording down the image’s side is a quote from my work, Malmaxa.
While writing the first book in the series, Beltamar’s War, I asked each of my children how they envisaged their marks. My interpretation of Julia’s description appears below, personally rendered into art that strives to emulate the words used to capture a mental image of her dream.
Some say, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” I don’t hold this to be true, there are many things a picture cannot capture, yet words can. Thoughts take this to another level entirely – they are elusive and hard to depict in either image, or word, yet artists manage.
Were you in Malmaxa, how would your marks of family appear?
Would you wear their symbols etched upon on your flesh, or in your heart?
